A very old courtesy tinged France of a touch of humour british, all mixed with a good dose of reserve, to say of modesty... Human walking her figure a little vaulted to the 34eétage of the Total of the defence tower is not easily let go to talk about him, especially when it causes it the private field. Just know loves to maintain modest garden bordering his home and read some novels. It must be said that Hubert Loiseleur des Longchamps, fifty-eight years, has more accustomed to "reach out to others" to put himself forward. Issue of nature, without doubt, but also professional deformation. Since 2005, this enarque famous promotion "Voltaire" - that of the Netherlands, Royal, Villepin and others... - headed the international relations of the oil company. Contract negotiations with the Governments of Africa, the Middle East or elsewhere, shares of lobbying in Brussels or Strasbourg, hop across the channel or the Atlantic, participation in meetings of OPEC in Vienna...: missi dominici of Total has not spared his sentence to "expose the concerns" and "promote the positions" of his employer at the four corners of the planet. His sense of contact and his knowledge of the records were appreciated top place, since the Director General of Total, Christophe de Margerie, comes to attach also institutional relations (domestic), by appointing him to position newly created Director of public affairs.
A life of luxury scribe
Second in a family of ten children, Hubert Loiseleur des Longchamps is defined as "a lawyer addicted" - referring to the of public law that he obtained before entering at Sciences po and the ENA. But it is the international economy that has always attracted him. In this regard, its debut at the dawn of the 1980s to the Ministry of industry, on a background of the Spain and the Portugal accession to the EEC, Tokyo Round and restructuring in the textile, coal and steel, it have not disappointed. Entered as head of the Office of the European Economic Affairs, he leaves fourteen years later with the rank of Chief of service and function of number two of the deceased Dhyca (Directorate for hydrocarbons), charged at the time of his glory to determine fuel prices. State power he will have indeed helped to loosen by participating with its leaders of the time, Claude Mandil and Olivier appears - two X - Mines which have strongly impressed him-, in the development of the law of December 1992 liberalizing the oil market.
Feeling ants in the legs, he abandoned in 1994 his envied status as head of Department to join Elf Aquitaine, where he entered by the back door as a single negotiator. There again, it will not disappoint. The company sends it in 1997 to Cameroon as a patron of the local subsidiary of exploration-production, position from which he will have to deal with the shock of the redemption by TotalFina. Repatriated in France as Director gas-electricity for the Middle Eastan area he knew well to have been attached financial at the Embassy in Cairo in the 1980s-, it again in 2002 in Africa. Direction this time Angola, where he took the reins of the exploration-production at the inauguration of Girassol. A life of luxury scribe quite different from that which would have been his had he stayed in the hallways quiet and anonymous of Bercy.
