Our team in the UK & Ireland

The Coface Group has a large international presence and organises its activities around seven geographic regions (Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific, Central, Western and Northern Europe, and the Mediterranean & Africa) and functional departments.

Each region is headed by a regional CEO, and the country managers within that region report directly to them. Each region has the autonomy to manage the activity and ensure its development according to the unique dynamics of its individual markets. Each region has a specific management committee.
