appointed Rossella Daverio, 43, as its new director of group

communications. Daverio joins from pharmaceuticals firm Rorer, which

last year became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rhone-Poulenc.



She replaces Andre de Marco, 60, who will oversee several special

projects for the group’s board of directors before leaving at the end of

the year, when he is expected to go into consultancy.



Daverio will directly manage around 35 people at Rhone-Poulenc’s Paris

headquarters. She will also co-ordinate the company’s communications

staff around the world. She will report to group human resources

director and board member Rene Penisson.



Daverio has worked at Rorer for two years. Between 1984 and 1996, she

worked at telecoms company Alcatel Alsthom, starting as a press officer

and becoming its director of communications in 1992.



Rhone-Poulenc’s PR agencies include Devarrieux Villaret Corporate

Communications, Euro RSCG and ACOCOM for media relations, and New

York-based Corporate Branding in the US.
