The organizational structure of Sweco Belgium

Our management structure is based on a three-dimensional development model:

  • A professional and strategically commercial market approach
  • An efficient and effective development of the operational structures
  • A forward-looking and innovative development combined with knowledge and experience sharing

The operational management team’s key task is to deliver qualitative and innovative projects to our customers. In order to achieve this, the Division Director manages all the operational employees of a business line in our various offices. They ensure that the right employee makes his or her contribution at the right time, under a Project Manager's supervision. The operational management team motivates and coaches our employees.

Our commercial activities are extremely professional and are designed to find out more about our customer’s expectations. The team’s assignment is to offer the right combination of knowledge and experience. The goal of our commercial managers and account managers is to develop a strong, long-term relation with each customer. To this end, clear agreements have been made and geographic and thematic responsibilities laid down. The commercial managers and account managers assess the customer satisfaction, in cooperation with the quality assurance department.

Knowledge sharing and development make up the cornerstone of our existence. The Business Development Managers investigate the development of market demand, and analyse and coordinate with the Knowledge Managers. They, in turn, develop new or modified knowledge and provide training and knowledge sharing.
