In his new position, Patrick de Leffe will be responsible for internal audits and controls as well as risk assessment; all key challenges for a Group like DCNS. He will remain Chairman of the Management Ethics & CSR Committee (CM.ERSE).
Sylvain Rousseau takes over from Patrick de Leffe as head of Purchasing & Supply Chain. Purchased products and services represent some 50% of the value of the Group’s products. The prime condition for achieving the target growth set by the championship strategy is, however, a substantial improvement in the Group’s overall performance over the next three years. One important way of achieving this is by significantly stepping up supplier involvement in the Group’s performance.
Patrick de Leffe and Sylvain Rousseau will take up their new positions on 13 September 2010. Both will be members of the Group’s executive board. Patrick de Leffe will report to Patrick Boissier, Chairman and CEO, and Sylvain Rousseau to Bernard Planchais, Executive Vice-President & COO.
