HOUSTON—Total Specialties USA Inc. has appointed Franck Bagouet senior vice president of lubricants.
Bagouet, a 30-year veteran of Total, spent the last five years with Total Canada and most recently served as president of the Canadian unit. He succeeds Christophe Doussoux, who has assumed a new leadership role for Total in Paris.
"I am very eager to begin this next chapter," Bagouet said in a statement. "The U.S. presents an exciting market for the lubricants business and I look forward to meeting that challenge. It is bittersweet for me to leave Total Canada. The relationships I built there were truly remarkable, and the Total Canada team continually made client satisfaction a top priority."
