In her new role, Cauquelin will serve as the director of Planète+, Planète+ A&E, Planète+ CI, Planète+ Thalassa, and Seasons, according to reports in multiple French publications.

Cauquelin will report to René Saal, and replaces Olivier Stroh.  Her promotion comes after she first joined Canal+ in 1989.
