On Monday January 10, Danone France formalized its new governance replacing its three management committees built by business lines into a single one organized around performance and the pooling of skills. François Eyraud will take the head of this new committee, made up of 10 general managers. LSA makes you discover, in pictures, the members of this Codir, as well as a summary of their backgrounds.
With the arrival of Antoine de Saint Affrique, at the general management of Danone in mid-September 2021 to replace Emmanuel Faber, the group’s governance system has been completely redesigned. Management is now done by country and no longer by profession (UF, drinks, etc.). A decision that is part of the Local First plan. This project aims to establish sustainable and profitable growth through a more agile, efficient and simplified organization to regain a head start in the market.
Thus, for France, and as revealed by LSA a few months ago, it is François Eyraud, former CEO of Danone Produits Frais France, who has been appointed to head this organization. Friday January 7, this 58-year-old manager with an international career, presented his new management committee internally, made up of 10 people. Objectives of the new team: pool skills, work in synergies to renew growth and improve profitability, reinvest in brands, seize market opportunities and respond to new challenges such as circularity, bulk and packaging.
LSA makes you discover the portraits, the profiles and the missions of these general managers, with the exception of the pole “vegetable acceleration”, whose recruitment is in progress.
