PARIS: Petro-chemical group Elf Aquitaine, France’s largest

industrial company, has promoted Michel Bonnet to senior vice-president

for communications and human resources.



Bonnet will oversee a corporate communications division with a staff of

around 50 people, which is itself headed by director in charge of

communications Jean-Francois Carminati.



The communications division deals with the company’s internal

communications, external relations including press, corporate affairs

and advertising, and employs PR companies on a project basis.



Bonnet, 55, replaces Jean-Luc Vergne, who resigned after 26 years to

become head of human resources at Peugeot-Citroen. Bonnet is currently

administrative adviser to the president of Elf Aquitaine, Philippe

Jaffre, who is chairman and CEO of the company.



Bonnet joined Elf in 1967 and has occupied a series of senior posts,

including associate senior vice-president of corporate communications

and vice-president of marketing and external relations for the group’s

refining and retail division.
