Michel Combes will step down as CEO of Alcatel-Lucent, effective September 1, as the company prepares for its merger with Nokia Networks.

For the duration of the transition period, Philippe Camus, currently Chairman of the Board of Directors, will become Chairman and Interim CEO. Jean-Cyril Spinetta is appointed Lead Director of the Board. Philippe Guillemot, Chief Operating Officer, will be in charge of leading the operational management of the group.

Commenting on the Board’s decision, Philippe Camus said: “In order to achieve the objectives of this transition period and ensure the successful integration with Nokia, I will be supported for operational responsibilities by Philippe Guillemot who, in addition to leading execution of The Shift Plan, will also be in charge of the Executive Committee and will co-lead the integration process with Basil Alwan.
