Gilles Le Borgne has been appointed as the executive vice-president for engineering at Groupe Renault and as a member of the Group Executive Committee (CEG). Le Borgne will report to Clotilde Delbos, chief executive officer for an interim period.
Renault’s latest appointment follows Gaspar Gascon Abellan’s decision to leave the company to pursue personal projects. Le Borgne, who previously held the head of engineering position at the PSA Groupe, began his role at Renault on January 6, 2020.
Clotilde Delbos, CEO at Renault, said, “For 30 years, Gaspar has been involved in Renault’s engineering teams and, at its head, has significantly developed powertrain engineering and contributed to the design of successful vehicles.
“The arrival of Gilles Le Borgne as head of the Group’s product engineering teams will accelerate the transformation of our engineering and effectively consolidate our R&D in a context of high technological stakes and rapidly changing environmental regulations in Europe and around the world.”
