Executive committee 

Managing the group's operations throughout the world

The Executive Committee is at the heart of the Essilor group's system of corporate governance. In 2010, the Executive Committee became more international and expanded to represent the group's global dimension.


The Executive Committee oversees and manages the smooth operation of the group's activities around the world.
It meets regularly to:
  • review the group's long term strategy and outlook;
  • ensure the group reaches its short-term objectives.


The Executive Committee is made up of the group's main administrative and operational managers.
