Paris—Tarkett’s supervisory board has appointed Fabrice Barthélemy as chief executive officer and chairman of the management board.

Barthélemy has been a member of Tarkett’s management board since 2008. He was the group’s chief financial officer from 2008 to 2017 and then became president of the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Latin America division. Since September 2018, Barthélemy has served as interim chairman of the management board.

Barthélemy possesses unique knowledge of Tarkett and its sector. He has successfully contributed to the group’s strategy of profitable growth, turning Tarkett into a world leader in flooring and sports surfaces. He contributed to more than 20 acquisitions and was also instrumental in the IPO on Euronext Paris completed in 2013. During his tenure as president of the division EMEA and Latin America, Barthélemy has demonstrated his ability to lead the group’s main division in a complex environment.

“After a transparent and thorough recruitment process, the supervisory board decided to appoint Fabrice as CEO,” said Eric La Bonnardière, chairman of Tarkett’s supervisory board. “His widely respected operational and financial expertise, combined with his leadership and his ambitious, yet realistic strategic vision for Tarkett are undeniably the qualities that will be required to undertake the rapid transformation of the group. As a strong leader, Fabrice has demonstrated his ability to unite and engage teams to ensure the implementation of our strategic decisions. The supervisory board and I are therefore fully behind both Fabrice and the executive committee in writing together a new chapter for the group.”
