DECRYPTION – Veolia, Suez, Engie… Large groups entrust their general management to women. A very slow but irreversible movement.
And two! The proportion of women at the head of a CAC 40 group will double with the appointment of Estelle Brachlianoff as Chief Executive Officer of Veolia, scheduled for 1er July. Catherine MacGregor, CEO of Engie since the start of 2021, will no longer be the only woman at the head of one of the main French groups. This share could even triple. The Orange board meets on Monday January 24 to designate its future operational boss. It is likely that it is a boss, both the State shareholder (23% of the former France Telecom) and its Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, are keen on it. Christel Heydemann, the boss of Schneider Electric in Europe, is a favorite. “With equal skills, the minister wants a woman to take over the management of Orange, we assure Bercy. He wants more women to get into corporate governance positions.”
