PARIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Orange Business Services has named Diana Einterz, head of Americas, the new head of the Direction des Grands Clients (French Major Accounts Division) effective November 1. Global business expansion and operations are key for large French companies. In her dual role, Einterz will support large enterprises in the Americas and France that are expanding outside their local markets.
Thierry Bonhomme, CEO of Orange Business Services, said: “We are a dynamic company, evolving as our customers increasingly go global. Diana has deep knowledge of global business and operations, supporting Orange Business Services’ multinational customers such as Coca-Cola Enterprises, Visa, a large Brazilian mining company and WEG, a global solutions provider of electric-electronic technologies and equipment. With her energy and drive, Diana will be a valuable partner for our large French multinationals in their global expansion.”
To support Einterz in her new responsibilities, effective November 1, Paul Henric is appointed deputy for the Direction des Grands Clients, in addition to his current responsibilities as the head of the France Programs and Services Direction. His current experience coupled with his previous work within Large Projects gives Henric deep insight into Orange Business Services’ markets, the services business, and the customers’ expectations.
“I am excited by the opportunities ahead of us. I look forward to helping our French customers expand globally and am confident that the synergies we will create with the team in the Americas will be able to help with this expansion. Additionally, our customers in North and South America will benefit from this broader vision. My organizations will be fully committed to providing industry-leading communication and IT solutions while achieving superior customer satisfaction,” said Einterz.

Previously, Einterz was head of Regional Operations and led a team of more than 2,100 technicians and support staff that delivered world-class installation and maintenance services to multinational corporations in more than 220 countries and territories.
Diana Einterz takes over from Benoît Eymard who headed the Direction des Grands Clients for the past three years. As of November 1, Eymard will assume new responsibilities within the leadership team of Orange Business Services.
