Eiffage seeks successor to Berger

By Sandy Guthrie26 October 2015

The posts of chairman and CEO at Eiffage are to be separated following the sudden death of Pierre Berger last week.

Berger, who had been chairman and CEO of the French contractor, joined the company in 2011.

A committee chaired by director Thérèse Cornil has been charged with finding a successor to Berger by the end of February 2016.

A board meeting this morning decided to separate the roles, with vice chairman and former chairman Jean-François Roverato taking on the role of chairman again for the time being. He recommended the appointment of Max Roche as CEO, again until a permanent successor is named.

The board paid tribute to Berger, saying, “His exceptional human and professional qualities were crucial to the development of the group, improving its profitability and advancing Eiffage shares.

“Pierre Berger was animated by an exceptional energy and a passion for the group.”
