New Governance at Odette International

With the retirement of John Canvin from his position as MD of Odette International, the six National Organisation shareholders of Odette (AIA, ANFAC, GALIA, Odette Sweden, SMMT and VDA) have decided to change the previous governance model so that they can become more closely involved in the day to day management of Odette activities.  

To facilitate this decision, they have formed the Odette Bureau to be responsible for realising the strategic directions decided by the Odette Board and for taking all operational decisions on behalf of Odette International. The members of the Odette Bureau are the directors of the six National Organisations supported by the Odette Central Office staff. Your own National Organisation director, or the usual Central Office staff member, therefore remains as your first point of contact for all matters related to Odette activities.

The Odette Board has nominated Ingrid Lundberg (MD of Odette Sweden) as External Relations Director. In this role, Ingrid will be responsible for all contacts and relationships arising from outside the Odette community but is available to answer any questions from within our community as well. Ingrid can be contacted on ilundberg@odette.orgWe expect this new structure to respond effectively to the demands arising from the European automotive supply chain.
