On Thursday March 21, 2019, the board of directors of our French colleagues, the Fédération Française de la Distribution des Métaux (FFDM),named its current general manager, Michel Julien-Vauzelle, as its chairman. Michel Julien-Vauzelle succeeds Philippe Jaud (Tata Steel Distribution Europe) who has chaired the French metal distribution federation for 3 years, the maximum term allowed by the statutes of FFDM.
Michel Julien-Vauzelle will hold both positions for some time: chairman and general manager. From 2020, Michel, as president, will be looking for a successor to Michel, general manager. This new force to be recruited will take over the reins of the FFDM from 2021.
Belmetal expresses its appreciation for the work accomplished by Philippe Jaud and congratulates Michel Julien-Vauzelle on his appointment as chairman of the FFDM.
