Alcatel-Lucent announces changes in its senior leadership team


Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced changes to its senior leadership team.

Frank D’Amelio, Chief Administrative Officer of Alcatel-Lucent is leaving the company to accept the position of Chief Financial Officer at Pfizer and Mike Quigley, President, Science, Technology and Strategy of Alcatel-Lucent, has decided to leave the company and return to Australia.

“During the past year, both Mike and Frank have contributed significantly to the planning for and the launch of Alcatel-Lucent. With their help, we achieved a number of important milestones in a very short time. We wish them much success as they embark on new chapters in their lives,” said Pat Russo, Alcatel-Lucent CEO.

“When we announced the merger of Alcatel-Lucent we acknowledged the breadth and depth of the senior management team and we anticipated that there would be an evolution in leadership responsibilities, which is natural. We are well served with a strong bench of top executive talent that we can draw upon as well as an extensive set of resources that we believe are unrivaled in the industry,” said Russo.

With Mike Quigley’s departure, Etienne Fouques, currently head of the Carrier Business Segment will assume the leadership for the Science, Technology and Strategy functions that previously reported to Mike. In addition he will also oversee the Services Business Group, which will continue to be led by John Meyer.

Michel Rahier, head of the Wireline Business Group will assume the overall leadership of the Carrier Business Segment, which includes our Wireline, Wireless, and Convergence businesses. The individuals who previously reported to Etienne as head of the Carrier Business Segment will now report to Michel. Further, we will strengthen the interface between the product businesses and the supply chain by reporting the Global Supply Chain to Michel as well.

With Frank D’Amelio’s departure the organizations that previously reported to him will now report to other members of the senior leadership team. In addition to his role as Chief Administrative Officer, Frank also oversaw the Integration Program Office, along with Christian Reinaudo. Christian will continue in his role, and together with Janet Davidson will co-lead these efforts. The discipline for monitoring and managing our integration activities are in place and operational and our integration plans, as we have said, are progressing.
