ALSO reviews its executive board
In a brief press release, broadliner ALSO has announced that Ivan Renaudin was leaving his positions as director of the French office, of reseller LAFI and of member of the executive committee. For all these positions, he is not replaced, although Laurent Mitais takes over the day-to-day management of the distributor, while Bruno Barat, the director of its value division, takes over the direction of sales and marketing, as COO. The reason for this departure is diverging opinions on the development of the French subsidiary. It seems however that Ivan has not completely left the group, but ought to focus on other, unnamed tasks.
