Charlier reportedly to take over at SFR

Vivendi is expected to name Jean-Yves Charlier as the new CEO of telco SFR, according to a report in financial daily Les Echos.

According to Les Echos, which did not specify its sources, the appointment of Charlier, currently deputy CEO in charge of telecoms at Vivendi, will replace Stéphane Roussel, who will retain the role of president of the company.

SFR is currently undergoing a restructuring plan that will lead to expected job cuts amounting to 1,120 posts.

Vivendi, which is in the process of refocusing its activities on the media sector, has been under pressure to sell one or more of its telecom units.
