Orange board appoints director

23 October 2014 |

Orange has today announced the co-opting of Mouna Sepehri as a director of the board, following a proposal from the committee for governance and social & environmental responsibility (CGRSE).

Sepehri will replace Murial Pénicaud, who has resigned following her nomination as head of the merger between AFII and Ubifrance.

The Orange board of directors now includes 15 members and Sepehri’s appointment will be proposed for ratification by shareholders at the company’s next general meeting, due for May 2015.

The board has also decided to renew the mandate of CEO delegate Gervais Pellissier, which was due to expire on November 1 this year. This has been extended to run for the same period as that of the CEO, Stephane Richard.

Sepehri is a member of the executive committee and director in charge of the CEO’s office in the Renault Group. She is a registered attorney at the Paris Bar and holds a law degree, having spent several years practising law in both Paris and New York.

In May this year, Richard was re-elected as CEO of Orange for a second term.
