Denis Brunel's participation in the IV program would help him
better understand U.S. policies on electricity and gas as well
as stress to him the importance of Europe's cooperating with
America on such issues for their mutual advancement. The
project will sharpen Mr. Brunel's knowledge of American
perspectives on current and future energy issues, develop a
range of contacts, and help ensure a balanced view of the U.S.
in someone of future influence on the politics of energy in
France and Europe.

NOMINATING-OFFICER: Sylvie Vacheret
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Two factors make Denis Brunel, a hardworking and driven
professional, an indispensable candidate for an IV program:
his professional focus on energy issues and his involvement in
politics. These factors have been part of his life since his
time as a university student.
After completing his university studies in Management and in
Politics, where he specialized in Human Resources Management
while at the same time holding down a job, he became an expert
in professional relations at Electricite de France. This
adeptness later led him to a position at the French
Association of Electricity and Gas Producers where he now
holds the title of Secretary General of the Human Resources
Committee. On top of this, Mr. Brunel is also a General
Delegate of the French Center for Electricity, a lobbying
association made up of various electric companies.
Throughout his life, Denis Brunel has been deeply involved in
politics. At a young age he joined Chirac's party, the
Rassemblement pour la Republique (RPR), and eventually worked
his way up to vice-president of the RPR's youth movement; a
position he held from 1985 till 1993. He later translated this
experience into a successful run for the city Counselor of
Valence. Always looking to the future, he next invested his
energies in the Association PanEurope France, which is the
French branch of the Union Paneuropeenne Internationale. This
organization is dedicated to the promotion of European ideals
and goals through debates and publications, and focuses
especially in the important and expanding domain of science
and technology. This is very important to U.S. interests
because securing the technological frontier is an important
aspect of the United States' national security. Furthermore,
it is desirable that an individual who heads up the French
branch of an organization encouraging European unity also
comprehend U.S. policy as fully as possible.
Denis Brunel is now approaching a turning point in his career
and is exploring advancement opportunities at EDF. His future
could also be influenced by the fact that he has close ties to
Nicolas Sarkozy, the new head of the UMP and possible future
President of France. As someone who has been in, and will
likely again be included in, political committees to devise
strategies for French energy issues, he is also in a position
to be considered for a future cabinet counselor.
Clearly, it would be advantageous to give a person with
political leadership experience, technological understanding,
and ties to the French and European political establishment a
chance to participate in a program that could further his
positive views of the U.S. and pass what he learns on to the
UMP, France, and Europe at large.
