Aluminium France's Board of Directors have unanimously elected Mr. Guillaume de Goÿs, Chief Operating Officer of Alvance, Chairman of Aluminium France.

Mr. de Goÿs succeeds Jean-François Faure, General Manager Aluminium Technology at Rio Tinto and Chairman of Aluminium France for 3 years.

The entire Board of Directors thanks Jean-François Faure for his mission within the profession. His mandate made it possible to reposition the aluminium industry within major French industrial professional organisations and to increase its visibility with stakeholders. This positioning has enabled the profession to be very responsive in managing the Rusal crisis of 2018 and that of COVID in 2020.

Guillaume de Goÿs will be keen to continue the work initiated by Jean-François Faure, and to help the profession meet the challenges of re-industrialisation, its response to climate change, and its permanent adaptation to the post-COVID business environment. .

A graduate of ECAM and IAE Lyon, Mr. de Goÿs began his career at Michelin before joining the Pechiney group in 2002. He joined Aluminium Dunkerque in 2014 as director of operations, then general manager before moving to become, in 2020, COO of the Alvance group.
