Governance

At Action we are committed to a sound governance structure and we are running our business with integrity. We firmly believe that transparency contributes to Action’s success. Our governance structure reflects how the company is managed and controlled, taking into account the interests of all relevant stakeholders. Action is majority owned by funds advised by 3i, a renowned private equity firm that provides Action with comprehensive knowledge, retail expertise and access to its international business network.

Company structure
Our business is in line with our formula: simple and straightforward. A flat organisational structure with a small headquarters and limited overheads to optimally support our stores and country organisations. At our headquarters in the Netherlands (Zwaagdijk), a team of professionals is working on the execution of our expansion strategy. Our teams at the headquarters work as an expertise centre for all departments, including HR, IT, Finance and Marketing. Our buying team is active around the globe. Our country offices primarily support the stores with customer service, acquisition of new locations, and HR & recruitment. With five distribution centres in the Netherlands, France and Germany we are well positioned to stock our stores swiftly, efficiently and in a sustainable manner.
