Shortly after announcing its 2017 financial results, Orange has reorganised its executive committee, opening the door to a more diversified and international team.

orange executive 08 mar 2018According to the telco, Spain will become a standalone business division, at the same organisational level as France, rather than one of several markets which comprise Orange’s Rest of Europe reporting segment.

As part of the executive move, Laurent Paillassot, CEO of Orange Spain, which has become the group’s second largest unit in terms of revenues, has been appointed deputy CEO.

The refreshed executive committee also includes Hugues Foulon as executive director for strategy and cyber security activities, Nicolas Guerin as secretary of the board of directors, Valérie Le Boulanger as executive director of HR, Alioune Ndiaye as CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa, and Helmut Reisinger as CEO of Orange Business Services.

“This is a decisive step in Orange's transformation that has been in preparation for a number of years. Together, we have already restored confidence within the group and returned the business to revenue and EBITDA margin growth in a fiercely competitive environment. Today, we are pushing back the boundaries of digital services by confirming our goals of diversification into financial services, cyber security and the connected home,” said Stéphane Richard, the telco’s CEO.
