ENGIE accelerates its transformation amidst the worldwide energy revolution, with a new organizational strategy in place since 1 January 2016, part of its enterprise project announced in April 2015: the Group is now made up of 24 business units created to better serve the territories, 5 Métiers in charge of specific fields of expertise and supporting the development of the Business Units, and a new head office to ensure the global cohesion.


In each geographical area where the Group operates abroad, the vast majority of activities is now combined into one operational entity with a single brand name: ENGIE. The goal is to maintain a closer relation with the Group’s regions and customers.


“Faced with an evolving energy market, this transformation is intended to serve the development of our Group and our position as the global leader of the energy transition. It will allow us to take on the many challenges of the energy market: decarbonization of the energy mix, digitalization of activities, decentralization of energy production and development of energy efficiency”, said Gérard Mestrallet, ENGIE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.


“Our clients, whether they are local authorities, businesses or individual consumers, are committed to the issue of energy transition. They want to participate and to define, create and manage with us the developed solutions. We must reinvent our Group so that it can become an energy architect at the service of all its stakeholders. We are now one Group that bears a single name: ENGIE”, said Isabelle Kocher, Deputy CEO and Chief Operating Officer.

  • The members of the General Management Committee are:
    • Gérard Mestrallet, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer,
