Caisse de Depots et Consignations plans to remain the largest shareholder of Veolia Transdev even if Veolia Environnement SA (VIE) sells its stake, CDC’s temporary Chief Executive Officer Antoine Gosset-Grainville told Les Echos.
Gosset-Grainville, appointed as interim chief executive in February, said in the interview he holds the full powers of chief executive.
Gosset-Grainville also said in the interview that CDC’s partnership with La Banque Postale to finance local authorities is a “major strategic opportunity.”
He told Les Echos that CDC would sign a protocol of intention with the government and La Banque Postale in the coming days.
