Orange Business Services' Dalibard to leave CEO post

France Telecom's Orange Business Services unit appears to be in the midst of a management shuffle as the division's CEO Barbara Dalibard has decided to suddenly leave the company for brighter pastures.  

Dalibard is leaving Orange for a new gig at SNCF, a French rail services company, sometime early next year. An eight-year employee of France Telecom, Dalibard simultaneously served as FT Group's executive VP of Enterprise Communications Services, and also as President and CEO of Orange Business Services.

Her sudden departure comes on the heels of Orange Business unveiling its cloud services strategy, which was announced in Paris last Thursday. Company spokesman Frédéric Gielec said the sudden news of Dalibard's resignation came as a surprise and that no decision has been made to replace her with an external candidate or look outside the walls of France Telecom.
