Laurent-Perrier has proposed a change to its board after one director resigned his position.

The Champagne house, which is listed on the French stock exchange, said earlier today (9 July) that Marie Cheval has been co-opted by its board as a member. Cheval would replace Grant Gordon, who has resigned “for personal reasons”, the company said.

Cheval, 38, was head of global transaction & payment services for Société Générale before moving to Boursorama as chief executive.

“[Cheval] will strengthen the board, to which she will bring her in-depth knowledge of the Champagne region and her extensive experience in finance and management,” Laurent-Perrier said.

Her appointment is subject to the approval of the group's next general meeting of shareholders, scheduled for July next year.

Last month, Laurent-Perrier posted a slide in full-year net profits, despite a 2% lift in sales in the 12 months to the end of March.
