Since its foundation its 1838, we have used several forms of governance to steer the organisation. Today, we are still an independent family business operating as a corporation. Our corporate governance is headed by the Uriach family as a business family and shareholders, while management of the group is delegated to a team of professionals who lead and manage the business.
This body unites all the members of the Uriach family who are over 25 years old, are shareholders or potential shareholders, and belong to various generations. It deals with operational decisions, wich are related to or affect the family and the company.
This is a corporative type governance body, made up of all the family shareholders. They manage matters associated with the organisational management model: strategic and tactical decisions, and also the composition of the Board of Adminstration.
This Board operates as the company body dealing with the leadership of all the Uriach businesses. Its members are chosen by the Family Council, according to the qualities required.
this is the dependent member of the Board of Administration, who is responsible for continuously supervising and observing the correct operation of Uriach. As the maximum responsible executive, since 2010 this position has fallen upon a member not belonging to the owner family.
Directed by Oriol Segarra Montaner, as CEO, it is made up of the Managers of the Business units and services of Uriach.
The whole organisational chart is included in the Family Protocol, introduced in 2000, which also considers all the rules on economic relations, regarding values and continuity.
The Code of Ethics aims to establish a foundation and common principles for all the guidelines and policies underpinning the ethical and responsible behaviour of all the professionals who work at Uriach during the course of their activities.
At Uriach we make sure our workers follow the Code of Ethics and the internal rules that implement it, as well as raising awareness of it and associated measures among our customers, suppliers and contractors, asking them to provide the necessary guarantees for us to be able to check and monitor them, either directly or through duly authorised third parties.
