Our Leadership

“I want to enable our managers, local market teams and business units to take charge and to do what is best for Philips. A timely decision may be right or wrong; a decision that comes too late is always wrong. By allowing our market teams to resource to win, we can continue making successful investments. Innovation will remain a cornerstone of our strategy. Investing in innovation is part of investing in growth. But we must base our bets on a very profound understanding of local markets and customers.”
Frans van Houten, President and CEO Royal Philips
