Christel Heydemann on course to become next Orange CEO – sources

PARIS (Reuters) – Orange, France’s biggest telecoms operator, is on course to name Christel Heydemann as the group’s new chief executive, making her the first woman to lead the former monopoly amid a full revamping of its governance, two sources close to the matter said on Sunday.

The board of Orange, on which Heydemann has sat since 2017, is scheduled to meet on Friday to formally appoint her as the new boss, the sources added.

Heydemann, who currently heads European operations at French electric equipment group Schneider Electric, was not immediately available for comment on Sunday.
