Philippe Guillemot named CEO of Eurazeo’s Europcar Groupe

Philippe Guillemot has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of  Eurazeo-owned Europcar Groupe with effect 1 April, 2010.


Guillemot succeeds Salvatore Catania, who is leaving his operational role after 35 years with the company. Catania will become Special Advisor to the new CEO to ensure a smooth transition and will continue to be closely involved in the Group’s success.

Guillemot, who was named Chairman and CEO of Areva T&D and Member of the Executive Committee of Areva in January 2004 having previously held management positions with Michelin, Valeo and Peugeot-Citroen, will focus on leading the company’s recovery following several months of difficult economic conditions.

“I thank Salvatore Catania for his crucial contribution to the success of Europcar, which has become the market leader in Europe under his management,” said Gilbert Saada, Chairman of the Board of Europcar Groups and a member of Eurazeo’s Executive Board. “I am delighted by the appointment of Philippe Guillemot. His managerial qualities are well known and we have great confidence in his ability to lead Europcar and meet the growth and development challenges that lie ahead.”
