Brief Biography

Marianne Laigneau, Chairwoman of the Enedis Management Board since February 2020, brings to the board her expertise as a director of France’s biggest operator in power distribution, a key sector in view of the major energy transition issues and the challenges it represents. Ms Laigneau, a French national aged 57, is a former student at the ENS (École normale supérieure) Sèvres with a higher diploma in classics, and the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and holds a post-graduate diploma in French literature. She joined the Council of State after ENA (École nationale d’administration).
