The Chemours Company announced the appointment of Guillaume Pepy to its board of directors.
Pepy is the former chairman and CEO of SNCF Group, a state-owned French railway and logistics solutions company where he spent nearly 26 years of his career. In 2019, after more than 10 years as chairman and CEO, Pepy stepped down from SNCF to pursue new endeavors, focusing on various board and advisory roles. Before joining SNCF, Pepy held high-ranking civil service positions in several French ministries. Pepy also served as chairman of Eurostar and as a director of the mobility and logistics services operator Keolis Group.
“Guillaume brings a wealth of public and government sector experience in addition to expert perspective and insights into the regulatory and environmental landscapes in Europe,” said Newman, president and CEO of Chemours. “Combined with his history of leading successful business transformations, I am confident that Guillaume will make many meaningful contributions to Chemours’ sustainable growth in this next chapter of our company.”
Pepy’s appointment to the board of directors went into effect on Feb. 8, 2022.
