Valeo S.A., the French automotive-industry supplier, said it has promoted long-serving executive, Christophe Perillat-Piratoine, as its new chief operating officer. Valeo said Perillat-Piratoine will take over from Luc Bleriot, who has been in this post since 2005 and is retiring.

Perillat-Piratoine would take up the position in March 1, 2011. Perillat-Piratoine began his career with the company, best known for its emissions reduction systems, in 2000 as a division general manager and has worked in a number of the company's branches.

Since 2009, he has headed the firm's comfort and driving assistance systems business group and he will be replaced in this role by Marc Vrecko, who is currently vice-president abrasives Europe, the statement said.

Bleriot joined the Valeo Group in 1993 as a division general manager before being appointed vice president of the climate control branch.

He was responsible for managing Valeo's electrical/electronics branches before being named chief operating officer in 2005.

Valeo’s CEO, Jacques Aschenbroich, said that Perillat-Piratoine, due to his success particularly in the development of the driving assistance activity, will actively support Valeo’s sustainable growth and profitability.
