Reorganization METRO Cash & Carry gives country divisions more entrepreneurial freedom

METRO Cash & Carry will grant its 26 national subsidiaries more entrepreneurial freedom in the future and has adapted its organisational structure for this purpose. While the national management will be given greater responsibility for operational functions, the headquarters is changing its management structure: in place of the currently nine-person METRO Cash & Carry Board - the so-called Extended Management Board, soon a team of ten Operating Partners will be overseeing two to three countries each, so their day-to-day activities will be focused much more sharply on the respective customers and the local demand. The new organizational structure will be gradually implemented starting on 1 July 2015.
