The move is designed to give greater recognition to the Business Line organisation and to focus on Pilkington as a product-based organisation.
Business Line organisation and structures are now firmly in place and effectively assuming responsiblity for delivery of their objectives. The changes delegate more formal responsiblity and authority to the Business Line Boards, clarifying their accountability for day to day control.
The overall leadership, strategic direction, policy adherence and management control for the Group will be maintained through the new Executive Board, chaired by chief executive Stuart Chambers. Other members are Andrew Robb, Iain Lough and Pat Zito, with the company secretary acting as secretary to the Board. The Executive Board will meet monthly, covering business reviews, budget approvals and the Senior Executive Development Committee discussions.
