French naval specialist Naval Group has appointed Alain Guillou as its Executive Vice President (VP) for international development.
Guillou will be responsible for boosting the group’s internationalisation in terms of business development and human and industrial presence.
He spent most of his career in positions with an operational dimension and linked to social-change management, industrial management and international cooperation, Naval Group said.
Alain Guillou said: “The aim is to transform Naval Group into a profitable international group to offer to our customers ships and equipment able to ensure sovereignty and possessing technological and operational superiority, with a high degree of availability and maintainability and at a price that is competitive on the market.
“To succeed, we must bring together and mobilise all our energy, first and foremost that of the Naval Group teams but also that of the DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement), French Navy and French government departments as well as that of our industrial partners.”
To remind, Naval Group’s subsidiary dedicated to marine renewables, Naval Energies, appointed Laurent Schneider-Maunoury as its new president last week.
