Vivendi reshuffles top management
August 21, 2012
France’s Vivendi has reshuffled its board, appointing Jean-Yves Charlier as head of telecoms and giving the chairman of pay-TV channel Canal +, Bertrand Meheut, the task of reviewing its media and content activities.
Charlier will take the telecoms job in October after quitting as head of interactive learning company Promethean and leaving the supervisory board of telecoms and media conglomerate Vivendi.
In his new post Charlier, who until now chaired the supervisory board’s strategic committee, will continue to participate in Vivendi’s strategic review in his new post,.
Vivendi’s Chief Executive Jean-Bernard Levy stepped down in June over a strategy dispute with the group’s supervisory board, paving the way for possible disposals to shake up its flagging share price.
