Organisation chart

People sometimes ask us about the suitability of our organisation chart, which depicts as many management teams as subsidiaries.
Is this not overly expensive, they ask?

We believe, on the contrary, that the proven efficiency of small, specialised and highly-motivated groups is a source of productivity and savings. 

The 18 CEOs, management teams and managers of subsidiaries do indeed have maximum freedom to develop their companies, benefiting from the support of Thermador Groupe which provides them with the financial, real estate and IT resources they need. They are in very close touch with the market, have numerous years of experience in the Group and in-depth knowledge of their professions.

Day-to-day, Guillaume Robin relies on Lionel Monroe and Patricia Mavigner to manage the Group. Twice per month, 16 managers get together during Executive Committee via video call to discuss Group news. Recently arrived or appointed CEOs of subsidiaries (Anne-Sophie Bultey, Florent Kieffer, Jean-Philippe Paul et Grégory Urpi) or future subsidiary CEO (Marylène Pattard) were very often invited to take part in this wider ExCom platform, which currently has 21 members.

Twice per year, they spend one or two days together offsite to reflect on and discuss our objectives, strategy, implementation, environment, issues and organisation.

The strategy and possible options are written in collaborative mode so as to obtain total buy-in and heightened operational efficiency when decisions are taken.

In end of January 2023, we invited 47 women and 87 men, managers and supervisors of the Group, to each subsidiary’s presentation of the 'Subsidiaries’ Objectives, Strategies, Projects and Challenges'. The audience was then invited to question the subsidiary bosses on their visions, analyses, decisions and forecasts. The directors and our auditors also attended the event.

Finally, the ExCom members run transversal groups per market (construction, industry and DIY) and per function, in which managers and supervisors from all the group’s companies can intervene.
