A system of checks and balances
High standards of corporate governance are at the heart of the Partnership: our structure gives our management the freedom to be entrepreneurial and competitive in the way they run the business for long-term success, while giving the company's owners, the Partners, the rights and responsibilities of ownership through active involvement in the business.
The Chairman, the Partnership Board, the divisional Management boards and the Executive Team form the management of the company. The Partnership Council along with divisional, regional and local democratic bodies, give Partners a voice and hold our management to account. The Partnership Council also elects five Partnership Board directors.
