The COVID-19 economic crisis has forced the world's # 2 yachting company Bénéteau Group to reorganize
According to Yachting Art English Edition, Bénéteau Group Deputy Director for Industrial Operations and Development Jean-Paul Chapelot since June this year has taken full responsibility for the development of the company's boat division.
At the same time, the Company changed the organization of the general management of the boat division, for which a single Department of Industrial Operation and Development was created, which was headed by Jean-Paul Chapelot, who was previously the head of Jeanneau and Prestige shipyards.
The French group, headquartered in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie in the Vendée region, immediately announced the reorganization of its industrial operations and the development of a division for the production of boats (in addition to this direction, this group also specializes in the manufacture of vacation homes - bungalows).
The overall management of industrial operations and development now spans all lines of business throughout Europe and North America. This strategy seeks to manage the Group in the context of major global or geographic functions, rather than legal entities. Thus, the aim is to achieve maximum synergy and consistency of actions.
Previously, the Bénéteau Group had a dual organization led by Jean-Paul Chapelot and Christophe Codrellier (until June 2020 - corporate director).
As a result of the aforementioned reorganization, Christophe Codrellier ceased to act as corporate director.
In this regard, the Chairman and CEO of Groupe Bénéteau, Jerome Metz, thanked Christophe warmly for his great contribution to the development of the Group and the boating division during his six-year tenure.
Chief Financial Officer Bruno Tivojon joined the Group's Executive Committee.
Groupe Bénéteau is currently working on a new strategic plan, which it plans to present in July next year.
