HEC Alum to Take Reins at Wendel Investissement

Frédéric Lemoine (HEC.1986), non-executive chairman of French nuclear group Areva and a senior adviser at McKinsey, was appointed on Wednesday night by the board of Wendel Investissement to replace Jean-Bernard Lafonta as CEO, putting an end to more than a year of family in-fighting over leadership and investment strategy. Much of the controversy stemmed from the questionable decision to take a 21.5% stake in staid French manufacturer Saint-Gobain. Best of luck Frédéric!
