Fujitsu Consolidates French Focus with new General Manager

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe appoints Jean-Michel Henrard to head up Paris-based French operation.

October 04, 2004

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd, the leading supplier of high performance telecommunications solutions, announces the appointment of Jean-Michel Henrard as General Manager of its French operations. He joins Fujitsu from Vivendi Universal, where he was CIO and CTO for VU Net, based in Paris and Los Angeles. Jean-Michel will be responsible for Fujitsu's telecommunications business in France, where the company is expanding rapidly in response to market opportunities. A locally-based team will report directly to Jean-Michel, operating from the company's regional office in Paris.

Commenting on Jean-Michel Henrard's appointment, Andy Stevenson - General Manager of Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd - said: "This is an extremely important time for Fujitsu in France, where we have a number of key evolving contracts and the opportunity to consolidate our position in the coming months. The launch of our GeoStream Access Gateway Multi-Service Access Node (MSAN) at the recent Broadband World Forum event, underlined our technology leadership in the broadband arena - technology that is actively being deployed in the field and is setting new standards of performance and functional excellence.
Jean-Michel's appointment reflects our commitment to service our French client base through the provision of local support, in conjunction with the extensive resources provided at our European headquarters here in Birmingham. His professional background and leadership skills will enable us to realise our long-term strategy in France. We believe that Jean-Michel's background in the entertainment and telecommunications industries will, in particular, provide an extra dynamic to how we serve the evolving broadband marketplace."
