Renault makes key changes to the executive ranks of its manufacturing

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 27, 2010

Renault has revamped the top ranks of its marketing, manufacturing and Eurasia operations. Gerard Leclercq, 61, will be Renault's new head of manufacturing and supply chain. He will take over 63-year-old Michel Gornet's post on Dec. 1 when the latter retires. Leclercq joined Renault in 1989.

He led Renault's Flins, France, plant in 1991 and became vice president for powertrain manufacturing in 1999. In 2007, he was promoted to head of human resources.

Meanwhile, the 53-year-old Marie-Francoise Damesin will assume Leclercq's post as head of human resources, from her post as senior vice president of communications.

She joined Renault in 1984 where she held previous management posts in sales and marketing, operations, and human resources. Leclercq and Damesin report to Renault CEO Patrick Pelata.

The 56-year-old Stephen Norman assumed the role of chief marketing and communications officer. He was the senior vice president of global marketing, a role he assumed in 2007 after being Fiat's global marketing director.

Norman's credentials include working for Volkswagen in France and Rover Group in England. The 43-year-old Frederique Le Greven was assigned as Norman's deputy.

Since 2008, she has been vice president of corporate information after working previously as head of corporate communications for Nissan Europe and then Nissan North America. In 1991, she began her career with Opel France and she later served as European communications director U.S. supplier Delphi.
