Operations Council

SGS is led by a dynamic group of individuals with many years of experience in their respective fields.

Our operational structure is made up of six focus areas composed of four divisions: Connectivity & Products, Health & Nutrition, Industries & Environment and Natural Resources and two cross-divisional strategic units: Knowledge and Digital & Innovation.

The Operations Council comprises the executive vice presidents, chief operating officers and functional senior vice presidents, as well as the group’s chief executive officer, chief financial officer and general counsel. They meet regularly throughout the year to determine group-wide strategies and priorities, and review performance.
