Executive Board

The members of the Executive Board implement the strategy of the fenaco cooperative. They have overall responsibility for all operational matters.

fenaco Management

The Executive Board of the fenaco cooperative comprises the divisional heads and members of the wider management. The Executive Board is headed by the Chairman, who has overall operational responsibility for the Group. It implements the strategies decided by the Board of Directors and informs the Board of Directors about business development and important projects.

The members convene, on average, twice a month for the Executive Board meeting. Moreover, it is usually the case that Executive Board members are also on the Board of Directors at larger subsidiary companies of fenaco or assume operational management as delegates to the Board of Directors. Executive Board members also take part in events for various communication platforms within the fenaco-LANDI Group, for example, the annual regional assemblies, the LANDI dialogues and the two-day Board of Directors’ seminars.

LANDI Division

The LANDI Division manages fenaco’s own LANDIs in four regions and promotes structural development as well as dialogue between the member LANDIs and fenaco. Furthermore, the Infrastructure/Sustainability Department is affiliated with this Division.
