“I am very eager to begin this next chapter,” said Bagouet. “The United States presents an exciting market for the lubricants business and I look forward to meeting that challenge. It is bittersweet for me to leave Total Canada. The relationships I built there were truly remarkable, and the Total Canada team continually made client satisfaction a top priority.”
Bagouet will take over for Christophe Doussoux, who assumes a leadership role in France for Total. Bagouet will report to Ernst Wanten, President & CEO Total Specialties USA, Inc.
Bagouet has been with Total for 30 years, the last five with Total Canada.
“Franck Bagouet will make a big impact on the USA market,” said Wanten. “I expect that he will continue the growth and strengthen the profitability of the USA affiliate, leveraging the notable successes of his predecessors while adding his personal touch to this.”
