Orange Group reorganizes for optimal performance

Based on the Orange Group’s Essentials 2020 and commencing March 1, 2016 the telecom company will be structured for optimal performance,ITRealms reports.

According the a press statement from the group, Marc Rennard, who successfully led Orange's development in Africa and the Middle East, will be appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of customer experience and mobile financial services. Armed with his experience gained in rolling-out Orange Money, he will be in charge of mobile financial services, one of the two areas of diversification set out in the strategic plan.

Bruno Mettling, who has worked ceaselessly for the Group’s transformation, will be appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of operations in Africa and the Middle East (AMEA). In parallel, Jean-Marc Vignolles, who has carried out outstanding work at the head of Orange Spain since 2007, will become his second in command as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of AMEA operations. Africa and the Middle East is a growth territory for Orange. The creation of a holding company bringing together its operations in this zone, as well as the planned acquisition of four new countries, opens up new development prospects for the Group to affirm its ambitions in that region, ITRealms reports.

Laurent Paillassot will be appointed CEO of Orange Spain. Laurent Paillassot, who brings his executive experience and who has been very successful in his work since he joined the Group, will take the helm of the Orange’s subsidiary in Spain, which, with the acquisition of Jazztel, is set to become the most dynamic convergent player in the Spanish market and now represents more than 10 per cent of the Group's revenues.

Jérôme Barré will be appointed Senior Executive Vice President in charge of Human Resources. Orange will mobilise all of its employees based on a new, people-oriented digital employer model. This is an essential condition for meeting the challenges of digitisation while adhering to the social contract. This key mission is entrusted to Jérôme Barré, who has already demonstrated his strong management qualities.

Thierry Bonhomme, who is currently in charge of Orange Business Services (OBS), will also be appointed Deputy Chief Executive Officer. This appointment recognises his contribution to the redeployment of OBS as the trusted partner for enterprise customers in their digital transformation.

The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Orange Group, Stéphane Richard, commented: “This new organisation has been thought out to support our strategic plan, Essentiels2020. I am especially proud of the talent that makes up the management team at my side. These changes will take effect on 1 March 2016 in order to allow for the completion of certain particularly important projects for the Group, such as the preparation of our mobile banking offer and the integration of Jazztel. I also wanted the coming months to be devoted to the preparation and organisation of this transition, so that it can take place in an efficient and coherent manner, and so that the new organisation will be fully operational from day one.”
