PARIS (Reuters) -- Renault said finance director Dominique Thormann, 61, was retiring for health reasons and would be replaced by Clotilde Delbos, currently a senior vice president at the automaker.
Delbos, 46, is a veteran of now defunct French industrial group Pechiney, later bought by Alcan. Delbos joined Renault in 2012 as group controller.
In a statement, Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn thanked Thormann for his contribution to the performance of Renault and its alliance partner Nissan. "We wish him a speedy recovery," Ghosn said.
Thormann started his career as a credit analyst in the Chase Manhattan Bank in New York in 1979. He joined Renault in 1989, moving to Nissan from 1999 to 2009.
