Organisation and Management

The H&M group has a multi-brand matrix organisation with well-defined brands: H&M, H&M Home, COS, & Other Stories, Monki, Weekday, ARKET and Afound.

Each brand is headed by a responsible individual and has local sales organisations. Centrally, there are a number of group functions that support each brand in order to enjoy the advantages of these common areas, so that each brand and country works purposefully according to central policies and guidelines.

The chief executive officer, who is appointed by the board of directors, is responsible for day-to-day management of the H&M group and appoints the members of the executive management team, which is made up of the CEO plus thirteen others – five of whom are women. The executive management team is made up of the CEO, CFO, the two people with responsibility for the H&M brand, the head of portfolio brands (which includes COS, & Other Stories, Monki, Weekday and ARKET), the head of business ventures (which includes Afound and Treadler), the two people with responsibility for business tech and the heads of the following group functions: expansion, strategy & transformation, human resources, sustainability, supply chain and communications. Those responsible for the other group functions are appointed by the chief financial officer.
