Veolia appoints new CEO for Asia–Pacific

Veolia Water Technologies has announced the appointment of Frédéric Théry as its Asia–Pacific chief executive officer. Théry took on the role in January 2016 after Veolia reorganised its operational entities according to four geographical regions, in order to facilitate greater cooperation between the company’s various business units.

Théry has gained a wide range of experience working in different entities across the Veolia Group over the last 23 years. He first moved into Veolia Water Technologies in 2003 as executive vice president at Veolia Water Technologies North America, leading the Design and Build division out of the USA for four years.

Théry moved to Europe to oversee the industrial business of Veolia Water Technologies in France until 2012, where he was appointed managing director of the Northern Europe entities. He is now overseeing Veolia’s business in the Asia–Pacific region and guiding the company in its transition to a new internal structure.

“By realigning our business units, we are actively fostering cooperation between divisions to refine our competitive edge,” said Théry. “Our water solutions set us apart from other providers, so it is imperative that Veolia transforms itself into a more integrated company to offer these technologies across the five continents that it is active in. I look forward to this new challenge and this chapter of my career with Veolia.”
