Rarely been so general meeting consensus than Veolia. The 700 shareholders gathered Wednesday in Paris at the Carrousel du Louvre, applauded the strategy of Mr. Frérot and voted no qualms in joining the Board of three new directors. Jacques Aschenbroich, CEO of Valeo, Maryse Aulagnon, president of the land Affine, and Nathalie Rachou, Topiary Finance manager, replacing in particular Jean-Francois Dehecq and Esther Koplowitz, both close to Proglio, the former CEO of service to local communities.
Absent at the meeting, it was not mentioned once during the session, either by the leaders of Veolia or by its shareholders. Yet, now boss of EDF but still a director of Veolia, he led a revolt against his successor without end, which he blames his change in strategy. In February, Proglio had launched an unsuccessful coup attempt against Mr. Frérot. More recently, his relatives have circulated in the press an anonymous note criticizing the management of the CEO.
This could, in the coming days, to make further revisions to its teams in particular, to oust managers who maintain the revolt against him.
