The general counsel of Alcatel’s communications, information and telecoms division, Marc Jany, has quit the French company to join Framatome ANP.
Jany, who has worked at Alcatel for 15 years and has held various posts, left Alcatel last Friday (26 March).
He is due to join Framatome as general counsel and deputy general counsel of Areva, the French nuclear engineering company’s parent on 1 May.
Commenting on his resignation, Jany said: “I’ve basically done all the jobs I can here. The only one that’s left is the group general counsel position, but that position wasn’t available.
“My new positions are an excellent opportunity for me. Areva is an up-and-coming company, which is soon to be floated,” he added. Framatome is 66 per cent owned by Areva and 34 per cent held by Siemens. Its legal department comprises around 30 lawyers.
Jany is being replaced by his deputy Graham Reddel.
