Michel Combes became Chief Executive Officer of Alcatel-Lucent in 2013, joining the company with more than 20 years of experience in the telecommunications sector and a strong international background. His appointment to Alcatel-Lucent followed four years at the mobile communications operator Vodafone plc. As CEO of Vodafone Europe, in charge of a business representing 70 percent of the group’s revenues, Combes led the group’s recovery in the region, steering it to regain its lead in two key countries, Italy and Germany.

Combes’ career began in 1985 at France Telecom in the US. After serving as a technical advisor to the French Minister of Transportation between 1991 and 1995, he became Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the France Telecom subsidiary GlobeCast. In 1999, he joined the tour operator Nouvelles Frontières Group as Executive Vice President before moving to the industrial engineering concern Assystem-Brime as Chief Executive Officer. He returned to the France Telecom Group in 2003 as Chief Financial Officer and a member of the Group Strategic Committee. He ran the NExt plan, which enabled France Telecom’s transformation into an integrated operator. In 2006 he was appointed Chairman and CEO of the French national broadcasting operator, TDF Group. Combes studied at the École Polytechnique in Paris and at the École Nationale Supérieure des Telecommunications. He is a non-executive board member of MTS, Altice, and HDL Development.

 

Michel Combes will share his views on the importance of digital inclusion and how digital connectivity is key to smart cities.
