Governance Executive Committee.

Our Executive Committee is responsible for making decisions upon approval from the Board of Directors, and all Central Level 1 staff members attend meetings. The committee is chaired by the Chief Executive Officer.

Our Executive Committee is made up of all our Executive Directors, including the Chief Executive Officer, General Counsel, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Shared Services Officer. Our three Regional Principals also attend meetings. We meet regularly and vote on vital strategic decisions, sometimes requiring approval by the Board of Directors.

The Executive Committee is chaired by the Chief Executive Officer or a nominee if the CEO is unavailable.
