Alongside its existing lines of business, it has set up four new regions responsible for the full service offer, in Western Europe, Middle East & Africa, Northern & Continental Europe, Americas and Asia Pacific.

The board will continue to be led by chief executive Marie-Christine Lombard with Laurent Parat in charge of the Western Europe, Middle East and Africa region and Thomas Kraus heading up Northern and Central Europe.
