From an operational perspective, the CEO is supported by the Group Executive Council (GEC), a decision-making body led by the CEO and composed of the heads of the operating sectors and certain central functions.
The GEC is composed of 4 main groupings: regional operations, brands, industrial processes, and support/corporate functions.
The first consists of 4 Regional Operations Groups for car manufacturing and sales, plus Automotive Components (mainly Magneti Marelli) and Production Systems and Castings (Teksid and Comau). A Chief Operating Officer (COO) is responsible for driving each organization via a regional Management Team. The COOs are accountable for the Profit and Loss of their region/business and management of regional resources, including manufacturing and commercial activities.
