Management Structure

The Oetker Group is directed centrally, but managed decentrally: responsibility for the strategy and alignment of the Group lies with the Group Management of Dr. August Oetker KG, the Oetker Group’s holding company. On the basis of an effective reporting system, the Group’s companies operate in the marketplace with a high degree of independence. It is here that the creative opportunities open to the roughly 250 managers of the Oetker Group, some of whom are members of the Oetker family, are seen.
