New general manager at STX France
Wednesday, 01 February 2012 | 12:41
STX France’s board of directors has nominated Laurent Castaing as its new general manager in replacement of Jacques Hardelay.
Castaing has a strong knowledge of the shipbuilding industry and of the Saint-Nazaire shipyard where he has started his career, having served as workshop manager (1985-1990) and deputy general manager (1998-2004). He then managed the Port of Nantes Saint-Nazaire (2005 - 2008) and the Grand Port Maritime du Havre as executive director (2008- present).
The board of directors, which expressed its gratitude to Jacques Hardelay for his seven years’ service, five of them as general manager, insists that the main task for the new general manager will be to strengthen the sales and marketing activities of STX France, while improving its productivity to secure the shipyards’ activity level.
“I am deeply happy to come back to a company I know so well: I perfectly aware of its abilities to focus on its targets and to make the necessary change to adapt to the market and to the present challenges. No doubt STX France is already on this way of change and will succeed in this challenge,” says Castaing.
