Duties of the CEO and management team

The CEO is responsible for the supervision and control of the Company’s day-to-day operations in accordance with the Limited Liability Companies Act and authorizations and guidelines issued by the Board of Directors. VMP’s management team assists the CEO in business control and development and coordinates group management. The CEO also handles and prepares matters to be discussed in the Board of Directors. The most important matters discussed in the management team are the Group’s strategy and annual planning, financial and sales planning and follow-up, business acquisitions and combinations and other business-related investments. The management team is not a decision-making body but the matters handled and recommended by it are discussed in VMP’s Board of Directors or implemented with CEO’s authorization.
