Our operating model




Our Operating Model

Our operating model creates a regional focus to implementing and living Vestas’ strategy. Furthermore, it secures global alignment and best practic-es to be shared and imple-mented, with a view to achiev-ing ‘one enterprise’ thinking across the global functions.

Vestas’ organisation is structured in a two-dimensional matrix.

Seven Global Function areas
One dimension being seven global functional areas, representing the key disciplines of our company and employees, as follows:

  • Finance
  • Sales
  • Service
  • Technology
  • Manufacturing & Global Procurement
  • People & Culture
  • Digital Solutions and Development

These seven areas are headed by members of the Executive Management team, who ensure Vestas’ all-round operational and organisational performance.

Five Regions
The Regions represent the other dimension:

  • Mediterranean
  • Latin America
  • Northern America
  • Nothern & Central Europe
  • Asia Pacific.

These include a simpler but more empowered Regional organisation with a management team consisting of the key business areas Sales, Construction, Service, Global Development, and Strategy & MarCom as well as a support structure consisting of a Regional CFO, a Regional COO, a Regional CTO, a Regional Head of Legal, and a Regional Head of P&C.

Executive Management team

More than a hundred years of expertise, will-power, and passion has formed the Vestas we know today. This has only been possible with the right management team, whose members show 

Simplicity, Accountability, Passion, and Collaboration.

Our Executive Management team is responsible for the day-to-day management of the company, observing the guidelines and recommendations issued by the Board.

Executive Management team is responsible for presenting proposals for our company’s overall objectives, strategies and action plans as well as proposals for the overall operating, investment, financing, and liquidity budgets to the Board.

The team consists of the President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO)  and seven executives.
