JAB Governance

JAB Holding Company has four statutory Managers, including the CEO and CFO, and has implemented a governance framework for strategy, finance, risk and compliance, remuneration, and responsible & sustainable investing. This framework is overseen by the JAB Board. The Chairman and CEO are each members of the JAB Board. The Managing Partners jointly constitute the Investment Committee. The Investment Committee obtains independent advice from our Senior Investment Advisor as well as two globally recognized Senior Advisors who have extensive expertise on strategy and governance matters.

Our Senior Investment Advisor

Olivier Goudet

Senior Investment Advisor

Mr Goudet became Senior Investment Advisor in January 2024 after having been JAB’s CEO for over 12 years. During his time as CEO, he led JAB’s strategic transformation, nearly tripling the investment firm’s equity as it built leading investment platforms across the coffee & beverages, petcare, fast-casual restaurants, indulgence, and beauty & luxury sectors. Of note, Mr Goudet introduced JAB’s coffee and beverage strategy, resulting in the formation of JDE Peet’s and the creation of Keurig Dr Pepper. He was also the architect of the veterinary care and pet insurance strategies. He remains a shareholder of JAB.

Our Senior Advisors

JAB partners with two globally recognized Senior Advisors, Antonio Weiss and Bertrand Badré, who provide us with advice on various governance and strategy matters, which are within their respective areas of expertise including business development, mergers and acquisitions, and Responsible & Sustainable Investing matters. At JAB, we highly value independent advice as it provides us with a fresh perspective on where we stand, our intentions, and our journey.

JAB Governance Framework and Policies

Business ethics are fundamental to the way in which JAB operates. In 2021, we became a member of the UN Global Compact (UNGC) and incorporated its Ten Principles into our strategy, policies, and procedures.

Our Governance Framework is intended to promote honest, ethical conduct and to ensure JAB’s compliance with applicable laws, regulations, rules, and obligations. The Governance Framework’s ultimate purpose is to provide an organizational and joint framework for monitoring, detecting and reporting any suspected non-compliance. It further outlines JAB’s approach to business ethics and how it addresses ethical risks in its day-to-day activities, including use of risk-mitigating controls. This serves to prevent regulatory agency enforcement action, civil penalties, or criminal sanctions. With this Governance Framework, JAB intends to increase employees’ professional competence with regards to compliance and business ethical matters.
