Thomson Multimedia will appoint a two-man management team from within the company to replace Thierry Breton when he leaves the French consumer electronics group to take the helm at France Telecom. The company said Charles Dehelly would step up from COO to replace Mr Breton as CEO, while vice-chairman Frank Dangeard would take over as chairman. Thomson said Mr. Breton would stay until the management changes were approved by a shareholders' vote on Oct. 8. He will remain on the Thomson board and continue to chair its strategic committee.
