Sonepar with general counsel

Olivier Catherine has been appointed General Counsel of the Sonepar Group. He will begin his new office on May 2, 2018.

Mr. Catherine comes from the business law firm Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, before which he held various responsible positions with Bureau Veritas.

He will be a member of the Sonepar Executive Group (SEG) and reports to CEO Philippe Delpech, who came to Sonepar on September 4, 2017 from the elevator company Otis.

In the countries where Sonepar operates, laws and regulations are becoming ever more complex, requiring someone to ensure that they are respected and enforced in this challenging business environment.
