“Laurent Guibert joins Atos Consulting”

Paris, 9 May 2005

Laurent Guibert, 39, has almost 15 years of experience in the field of management consulting, which has enabled him to acquire broad expertise in finance and key financial processes. During a six-year stint at Axys Consultants, he managed reorganization projects for accounting and finance departments in addition to implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) finance and financial control solutions. In 1996, he joined Coopers & Lybrand Consultants (which subsequently became PwC Consulting and IBM Business Consulting Services), where he gained wider international experience and carried out projects more specifically focused on performance measurement, support function optimization and business process outsourcing. In early 2003, Mr. Guibert embarked on a new adventure by creating a company offering electronic billing services to large companies.

His main mission at Atos Origin is to develop the Industry-Services-Retail practice, particularly through the deployment of finance and financial control solutions to help finance departments and senior managers in the manufacturing industry meet their financial management challenges.

In addition, within the Atos Consulting European network, Mr. Guibert will lead France's contribution to the Financial Management Services center of excellence, which is designed to develop competencies, share experience and promote financial solutions aimed at enhancing business performance.
