PARIS - Almost everyone who works in product development or manufacturing at PSA/Peugeot-Citroen has a new boss today.
Changes to the top of PSA's organization were announced in January by President Jean-Martin Folz. PSA announced a second wave of new appointments last week.
Five platform managers are joining the newly created platform division, run by Roland Vardanega. They are Alain Baldayrou (former Sochaux plant manager), Yves Fallouey, Jacques Pinault, Jean-Louis Reynal and Claude Vajsman (former Citroen manufacturing boss).
Pascal Henault, previously head of Peugeot product planning, takes charge of PSA innovation policy, inside the new quality and innovation division managed by Robert Peugeot. He is replaced by Bruno de Guibert, who was in charge of engineering for Peugeot vehicles.
Five of the six big PSA plants have new bosses: Alain Hamm (Aulnay), Denis Duchesne (Mulhouse), Marcel Riond (Rennes), Roger Garnier (Sochaux) and Javier Siera (Vigo, Spain). Daniel Eymery remains in Poissy.
Herve Guyot replaces Jean Wolff as purchasing manager. Wolff is now head of a new engineering and purchasing division.
