French vessel owner and offshore services provider, Bourbon, has appointed Astrid de Bréon as chief financial officer of the group.
She will assume her function on February 1, 2017 and will resign from her seat on the board of directors at that time.
“Thanks to the benefits of the digital revolution, the business model of Bourbon is led to evolve. The CFO will not only bring innovation to the heart of the financial strategy but also accompany the strategic transition of the company. I am convinced that Astrid will bring value to this transformation within the General Management team in compliance with the values of Bourbon,” said Jacques de Chateauvieux, chairman and CEO of Bourbon.
The group’s general management will thus be composed of Jacques de Chateauvieux, chairman and CEO, Christian Lefèvre, deputy CEO, Gaël Bodénès, chief operating officer and Astrid de Bréon, chief financial officer.
