The Management Board is the driving force of our business and consists of the leaders of all our services teams plus marketing and IT.

Whilst individually the members of the Management Board are responsible for the success of their division and accountable to the Executive Board, collectively they come together to discuss and share strategy, encouraging cross-selling, business promotion and collaboration across the whole company.
