Patrick Pujanene has become the new head of Total

Patrick Puyanne became the new general director of the French energy concern Total, and Thierry Demare was elected president of the company.

The decision was made on the basis of an extraordinary meeting of the board of directors, which took place less than two days after the death at the Moscow Vnukovo airport of the president and chairman of the board of directors Christophe de Margerie. Later information about appointments was published on the official website of the company.

Puianne previously served as head of the Total Refining Division. Demara served as chairman of the board of directors.

Prior to this, the media reported that the posts of the general director and president of the company after the death of de Margerie would be divided (the deceased head of Total combined both of these posts).

Total President Christophe de Margerie was killed on the night of October 21. He was aboard a Falcon 50 aircraft that crashed at midnight at Moscow's Vnukovo airport - during takeoff, the aircraft collided with a snowblower, which drove onto the runway.

De Margerie was known as a businessman who considered Russia to be a country attractive for investments, and also as an opponent of sanctions against Moscow.

“We are committed to Russia. We want to continue to invest in your country and are still willing to bring the best of what we have with us. We are against sanctions in general. I repeat this over and over. And you've heard about it, ”de Margerie said at a meeting of the Foreign Investment Advisory Council, in which he participated on October 20, on the eve of his death.
