CATHERINE GUILLOUARD has taken a chief financial officer role at electrical installation supplier Rexel.

Guillouard will also take on the roles of senior vice president and member of the executive committee in May this year.

She joins from global satellite operator Eutelsat Communications, which she joined in 2007 as CFO. Prior to that she was senior vice president of finance at Air France from 2005 and began her career at the French Treasury.

Guillouard succeeds Michel Favre who announced his decision to step down in October 2012 to pursue new career opportunities.

Rudy Provoost, chairman of the management board and CEO of Rexel, said: "I am very pleased to welcome Catherine Guillouard as a key member of Rexel's leadership team.

"Her management experience and financial acumen will be strong assets for Rexel and of tremendous value. I also would like to thank Michel Favre for his contribution to Rexel over the past four years. He has put in place a strong finance function and created a solid foundation for Catherine Guillouard to build upon."
