Corporate management

Board of Directors

Novo Nordisk has a two-tier management structure consisting of the Board of Directors and Executive Management.

The Board of Directors supervises the performance of the company, its management and organisation on behalf of the shareholders.  It also participates in determining the cpmpany strategy.

Executive Management, in turn, has responsibility for the company's daily operations.

The two bodies are seperate, and no person serves as a member of both.
