The President and CEO and operative management

Tieto Group’s operative management consists of the President and CEO, the Leadership Team and the Industry Group, Service Line and Product Development Services (PDS) organizations. The Industry Solutions Service Line includes the New Data-Driven Businesses unit organized independently of other businesses.

The President and CEO is appointed by the Board and he is responsible for the Group’s operative management, internal efficiency and quality.

The President and CEO is assisted by the Leadership Team, which includes the heads of Industry Groups and Service Lines, head of New Data-Driven Businesses, the CFO and the head of HR. Appointments of Leadership Team members are approved by the Chairman of the Board based on the President and CEO’s proposal.

The Leadership Team members are accountable for the performance and development of their management areas and they supervise the operations of the units belonging to their areas. As a general rule, the business units in both management dimensions (Industry Groups, Service Lines and PDS) make their own operative decisions and are responsible for conducting their operative duties. The Industry Group, Service Line and PDS organizations have a profit and loss responsibility. Further, the Leadership Team also monitors the company’s corporate responsibility (CR) performance and approves the CR goals in cooperation with the Board of Directors.
