Orange Poland to nominate new board members

Orange Poland is set to propose four new members for its board at its annual general meeting on April 11, including former Polish finance minister Mirosław Gronicki. 

Gronicki held the minister of finance post between 2004 and 2005 and is currently working as an independent consultant to Goldman Sachs International, asset manager Brevan Howard and the Poland-based Bank Millennium.

The other candidates are: Gervais Pellissier, the chief executive officer delegate of Orange Poland’s parent firm, France Telecom-Orange Group; Eric Debroeck, who has worked as senior vice president of group regulatory affairs at France Telecom – Orange since mid-2004; and Marc Ricau, who has worked at France Telecom since 1986 and became VP of Orange Europe team in Poland earlier this year.

They will replace four existing board members whose mandates are due to expire next month, said Orange.

Last year Orange Poland grew its TV base grew by 11% to 706,000 customers, while broadband numbers remained stable at 2.345 million.
