Business Patrick Pouyanné Replaces Christophe de Margerie as Total CEO



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
French oil giant Total on Wednesday named Patrick Pouyanne as its new Chief Executive Officer after Christophe de Margerie was killed in Moscow when his private jet hit a snowplough on takeoff, according to WallStreetJournal.


Total SA ’s board of directors on Wednesday named refining and chemicals head Patrick Pouyanné as its new chief executive, installing a company veteran to navigate the oil major through a period of sliding oil prices and uncertain politics in Russia, where it has made a large bet.

The move follows the sudden death of the French company’s Chairman and CEO Christophe de Margerie in a Moscow plane crash late Monday.

Total’s board, meeting in an emergency session Wednesday morning, approved a plan to separate the roles of chairman and CEO and to bring back former chairman Thierry Desmarest to resume that post.
