On the initiative of the Supervisory Board, chaired by Nicolas ver Hulst, Wendel’s corporate governance was changed so as to enable the Group to deploy new talents and implement its strategy.
David Darmon, who was in charge of Wendel’s New York office, joined the Executive Board in September 2019. David and André François-Poncet will work as a team to step up the Group’s development. In particular, they will seek to accelerate value creation in the Group’s portfolio companies and identify investments in line with our established criteria.

In addition, several senior managers of the company have taken on new responsibilities as Executive Vice Presidents: Jérôme Michiels, Josselin de Roquemaurel and Félicie Thion de la Chaume.
