The company is to be divided into five global regions with general managers reporting to the global CEO.
 
The five areas are Brazil, Latin America, Europe / Eurasia, Asia and Africa / Middle East.
 
They will have the support of the corporate sectors such as Quality and Management, Innovation and Marketing, Supply Chain, Legal and Corporate Relations, Finance and People.
