French cable operator Numericable has named Jean-Michel Hégésippe to its administrative council, replacing Marco de Benedetti, who has resigned. 

The change follows the shareholders agreement between Altice, Cinven and Carlyle struck ahead of Numericable’s IPO, which saw Altice take an additional 5% stake from both Carlyle and Cinven, raising its stake to 40%.

Hégésippe is the founder and CEO of Outremer Telecom, an alternative telco offering services in Guadeloupe, Guiana, Martinique, Mayotte and Reunion that was acquired by Altice last year.
