    In a demanding context, which places mobility at the heart of regional concerns, faced with the challenges of energy transition and social inclusion, and with a view to the upcoming opening of competition in the rail sector and in the Greater Paris region, Transdev France is opening a new chapter. Under the impetus of its new France CEO, Edouard Hénaut, a new organisation is being set up with multiple objectives:

    • Strengthen the role of integrator of daily mobility solutions in the French regions;
    • Consolidate proximity and the knowledge of passengers and transit authorities;
    • Accelerate sales development;
    • Strengthen the client focus and collaboration.

    The anticipated acceleration in the pace of calls for tenders over the next five years, with strategic conquests and opportunities in the rail sector, requires Transdev France to undergo a fundamental transformation.

    With this new organization, we will further reinforce our preferred partnership status with the territories to develop an ever more innovative, accessible, sustainable mobility that cares about passenger well-being.

    Edouard Hénaut, CEO of Transdev France

    In order to improve performance and efficiency, Edouard Hénaut has decided to strengthen the link between the regions and the central offices, and thus to appoint Sylvain Picard, Deputy CEO. To round off this scheme on the opening-up to competition in the greater Paris region and for rail transport, Brice Bohuon is appointed CEO Greater Paris region and Rail Transport.

    The Transdev regions are managed, as closely as possible to the territorial challenges, by Sylvie Baqué for the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Thierry Brunel for the Occitanie region, Vincent Destot for the Hauts-de-France region, Brigitte Guichard for the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, Sylvain Joannon for the South region, Gildas Lagadec for the Brittany and Pays de la Loire regions, Christophe Mallet for the Centre-Val de Loire region, Olivier Monnot for the Grand Est region (from end of August 2019), Pascal Morganti for the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, Sylvain Picard for the Normandy region and Julien Tenenbaum for the Overseas Region.

    Salima Saa brings together and manages the Development and Commercial Department, including the Offers Department. The specific activities are managed by Xavier Heulin for the Parking activity, Julien Augerat for the Health activity and Vincent Cordonnier for Transamo, under the supervision of Edouard Hénaut.

    The central management is ensured by: Xavier Aymonod for the Passenger Customers department, Jean-Marc Bernini for B2B activities, Stephanie Zeppa for the Performance, Transformation and Information Systems department, Sylvain Picard for the Fleet Operations department, Pierre Talgorn for the Finance and Purchasing department and Hervé Baron for the Human Resources department.
