MICHEL D'ORNANO

Politician - Mayor

Coming from a family of industrialists, Michel d'Ornano first distinguished himself as a business leader, creating with his father and brother Jean d'Albret-Orlane, before embarking on a career local then national politics. Elected in 1962 Mayor of Deauville, he was deputy of Calvados from 1967 to 1991, then General Councilor of Calvados (1976-1991), President of the General Council of Calvados (1979-1991), and of the Lower Normandy Regional Council (1983 -1986). He was appointed Minister as soon as Valery Giscard d'Estaing was elected President of the Republic in 1974. He was successively Minister of Industry and Research (1974-1977), Minister of Culture and the Environment (1977-1978) and Minister of the Environment and Living Conditions (1978-1981).

He was also Chairman of the finance committee of the National Assembly from 1986 to 1988.

In 1988, while remaining deputy and President of the General Council of Calvados, he returned to the economic world following his appointment as Vice-president of Socpresse, a holding company of the Hersant group. In March 1991, Michel d'Ornano died following a traffic accident.
