The Post Merger Integration Excellence group plays a central role in the operational implementation of integration and carve-out processes within the BASF Group. To reach the strategic and financial goals that have been set, the team develops suitable integration and carve-out concepts early on, during the transaction phase. The basis for this is the business models for the businesses that are being integrated or spun off. Afterward, the team shares in responsibility for implementing the concepts in operational terms. Within the Project Management Office (PMO), team members take on responsibility for coordinating the project with all of the business units and functional units involved at the central level, and often regionally as well.
