LATECOERE : Board appointments


As the mandates of the current members of the Executive Board came to an end, the Latécoère group Supervisory Board chaired by François Junca on January 6, decided to renew the office of François Bertrand, Chairman of the Board, and to appoint Bertrand Parmentier as Managing Director as well as Roland Tardieu as a member.

Jean-Jacques Pignères, until now a member of the Executive Board and Financial Director, will retire after 38 years with the Latécoère group. His mandate has therefore not been renewed.

Commenting on these appointments, François Bertrand declared: "First of all, I would like to thank the Supervisory Board for their renewed confidence and support. I am pleased to welcome Bertrand and Roland to the Executive Board. They have all the qualities needed to continue the expansion of our Group and we are ready to face the challenges ahead Latécoère after a troubled 2008. Finally, I thank Jean-Jacques warmly for his commitment to the Group and for his involvement throughout his career."

The new Executive Board took over from 7 January 2009.
