Ramon Fernandez and Laurent Paillassot are joining Orange's Executive Committee as Deputy CEOs, the operator has revealed.
Fernandez is to leave his position as Director General of the French Treasury to take up the Chief Financial Officer role.
Paillassot, who acting CEO delegate at LCL Retail Banking, becomes Executive Vice President for Customer Experience and Mobile Banking.
Both will take on their new roles on 1 September, although Fernandez’s appointment is dependent upon review by the French Ethics Committee.
“I am very pleased that these two very talented individuals will be contributing their invaluable skills to the Group’s Executive Committee," said Orange President and CEO Stéphane Richard.
"Ramon brings his widely-recognized expertise in the financial world and Laurent's extensive experience in retail banking and customer satisfaction will be a real asset for the Group.”
Meanwhile, CEO Delegate Gervais Pellissier is moving to replace Benoit Scheen as Orange's head of Europe, which does not include France or UK-based joint venture EE.
The appointments come at a time when the landscape of French telecom is undergoing radical changes.
Following Numericable's acquisition of rival SFR, Orange has itself been in talks with Bouygues over potential mergers and RAN sharing.
Last month, Orange revealed that sales fell 3.8 percent to €9.8 billion in the first three months of this year despite its customer base rising four percent to 239.4 million.
