Capgemini Group announces new board member following the resignation of Mr. Bernard Liautaud.
Paris, October 9, 2013
The Board of Directors of Cap Gemini, which convened on October 8th, accepted Mr. Bernard Liautaud’s resignation from his directorship of Cap Gemini. Mr. Liautaud had recently indicated that his new professional responsibilities would involve greater overseas activities, making it impossible for him to fulfil his mandate satisfactorily.
After consideration, the Board of Directors co-opted Mrs. Anne Bouverot to replace Bernard Liautaud as a new director until the General Assembly called to approve the accounts for the year ending December 31, 2016. In accordance with the laws and bylaws, this appointment on a temporary basis shall be subject to ratification by the next Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders.
Paul Hermelin, Chairman and CEO of the Capgemini Group: "I thank Mr. Liautaud for the quality of his contribution to the work of the Board of Directors, especially in his role as Chairman of the Strategy and Investment Committee. Bernard provided a decisive impulse to our efforts to develop and exploit the Group’s intellectual property. I am delighted to welcome Mrs. Bouverot as a member of the Board: her very solid technological experience, particularly in the networks and telecommunications sector, as well as her international experience, will be strong assets for our Group."
Anne Bouverot has been CEO of the London-based GSMA - the body representing 850 mobile operators in 218 countries globally - since 2011. Between 1992 and 2011, she fulfilled various roles within the France Telecom Orange, finally being in charge of its Mobile Services global business unit. She is also on the board of directors of Edenred.
Anne Bouverot is a graduate of Telecom Paris, Ecole Normale Supérieure (where she wrote a thesis on IT) and INSEAD.
