Reviewing our organizational structure
In October 2021, Barco decided to replace its fully-fledged matrix organization by a more focused model. In the past, geographic regions handled sales, marketing and customer service functions and interacted with business units in the operational divisions. Under the revised structure, regional sales are folded into in the business units together with sales, product management, and research & development. In addition, more general functions like services, sales support, operations, digitization, finance, HR, legal and Barco Labs will be managed on a global level:
Our operations remain centered around three markets: Entertainment, Enterprise and Healthcare. Each division now comprises two business units:
Our new organizational market structure will boost agility, market responsiveness as well as accountability. Business units are now fully empowered to execute strategic priorities while global functions act as an enabler for the entire organization.”Charles BeauduinCEO
