Based on an invitation from the Corporate Strategy & Development department to further boost strategy in the company by providing voluntary support, the 'Core Strategy Team, CST' is currently made up of the heads of the regions and selected global heads of functions. With a newly developed program structure, the team members will support different areas of the strategy.
The basis for the CST's work is the 'Strategic Directions' to achieve linkage between the different topics - see 'Strategic Directions'.
The 'Core Strategy Team' is supported by the 'Extended Strategy Team'. This is an extended group of people who are consulted for support on a topic-related basis.
Members of the 'Core Strategy Teams' are:
- Chrisoula Angelidou, Human Resources
- Richard Drummond, Sales
- Stefan Wallmeier, Corporate Strategy & Development
- Jose Garcia, OPEX
- Mark Hilfinger, Business Area AMERICAS
- Dongliang Jiang, Business Area ASIA
- N.N., Business Area EUROPE

At KAMAX, there are four 'Strategic Directions': Innovation, Sales, Efficiency and People. Measures that are assigned to the strategy and thus to the goal of 'Back to the Top' must fit into one of these 'Strategic Directions'.
For each of these 'Strategic Directions', guiding principles have been defined, which we present below:
Understanding and managing our markets and customers will drive our business and innovations.
Hunting for business opportunities and lead market share.
Speed up and simplify our processes to reduce lead times.
Driven by high performance teams with engaged and excellent people.
Based on the 'Strategic Directions', a new 'Program Structure' was established. The 'Core Strategy Team' is part of this new management structure. The Corporate Strategy & Development department (Stefan Wallmeier) is responsible for project management. Based on the 'Strategic Directions' there are the modules Efficiency, Growth (here innovation and sales interests are combined) and People. A module supporter has been assigned to each module. And with the new 'Program Structure' the coordination with the regions is fostered. see 'Program Structure'.
