    Bernard Gautier leaves the Wendel group after 16 years of service as Group Deputy CEO

    Bernard Gautier, Group Deputy CEO, member of the Executive Board, and the Wendel group have decided to end their collaboration.

    Bernard Gautier joined Wendel in 2003 as Director of Development and Equity Investments. Since 2005, he has headed the investment team and, in this capacity, has served on the Executive Board alongside its successive CEOs.

    Wendel’s Supervisory Board extends to Bernard its profound gratitude for the exceptional part he has played as an investor, entrepreneur and leader, which has been crucial to the Group’s renewed success over the past 16 years and the consolidation of its operating and financial structures since 2009. 

    The Wendel group thanks Bernard in particular for having conducted and managed its investments in Editis, Deutsch, Stahl, IHS, Parcours, NOP and Constantia Flexibles. Bernard also served as a Director on the boards of Saint-Gobain, Materis and Cromology. Strongly committed to the Group’s international growth and expansion into new investment areas, Bernard has driven the Group’s development in Asia, the United States, Africa and in London since 2007. He has initiated and coordinated the Digital@Wendel project and the creation of Wendel Lab since 2015.

    Bernard Gautier said, “Wendel has been a life-changing experience, personally and professionally, over the past 16 years. I have carried out projects supporting the long-term growth of the Group’s assets and teams and had the opportunity to work with extraordinary entrepreneurs. As a Senior Executive of this Group, I am proud to have built a new generation of talent that will continue to write the history of Wendel.

    The new composition of the Wendel Executive Board will be published on September 11, 2019, (pre-market release).
