The report French newspaper Les Echos last week said Bouchut was the leading candidate for the vacant CFO role at Veolia. If he leaves Delhaize, Bouchut would be the third top executive to depart the retailer since Frans Muller was announced as its new chief executive in early September. U.S. CEO Roland Smith and more recently Europe CEO Stéfan Descheemaeker have announced resignations.

A financial analyst following Delhaize at the time of Muller’s appointment in September told SN that he would not be surprised if Bouchut also departed.

Bouchut joined Delhaize in 2012 from Carrefour and has served as the Group’s CFO, executive vice president and a member of its executive committee.
