Michel Denis
Ancenis, France
Dominique Bamas has resigned as president and CEO of Manitou BF. Bamas was appointed on an interim basis on 6 March 2013 and is resigning to permit the appointment of Michel Denis as the new president and CEO.
Denis started his new role on 13 January. He will be president and CEO for a four-year term that expires at the shareholders’ meeting for the approval of 2017 financial statements.
Board chairman Marcel Braud thanked Bamas for the work he had accomplished.
"After having assisted the Board for several years as a director, he made himself available at a pivotal moment in our history that required a realignment between profitability and development. During this period, he stabilised financing for the next five years, reduced the debt and initiated a combination of optimisation programs and developments from which the group should benefit in the upcoming years."

He joined Dalkia in 1994 to develop cogeneration.
