Nestlé has a Board of Directors, led by our Chairman Paul Bulcke, who was the former Nestlé CEO. Full details of each member and the committees that they operate within can be found in our Board of Directors section.

The day-to-day management of the Nestlé business is taken care of by our Executive Board. The designated Board Members manage diverse parts of the global business. A full curriculum vitae of each member can be found in the Executive Board section.

The Nestlé Group is managed by geographies - Zones EMENA (Europe, Middle East and North Africa), Americas and Asia/Oceania/sub-Saharan Africa - for most of the food and beverage business, with the exceptions of our globally managed businesses, which include Nestlé Waters, Nestlé Nutrition, Nespresso, Nestlé Health Science and Nestlé Skin Health. We also have joint ventures such as Cereal Partners Worldwide and Froneri.
