Canal+ has promoted its director of documentaries Christine Cauquelin (pictured) to head of the French network’s portfolio of thematic channels.

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.
