The boss of French media and telecoms group Vivendi is quitting his job following a dispute with his board over the company's future strategy.
Vivendi said Jean-Bernard Levy was stepping down "following a divergence of views on the strategic development of the group".
He is being replaced by Jean-Francois Dubos, who is currently the company's chief lawyer.
Vivendi's shares have been at a nine-year low this year.
Mr Levy's departure follows after a meeting of the company's senior managers to discuss the firm's strategy moving forward.
Vivendi's main telecoms business, SFR, has recently faced increased competition, which has seen it lose market share.
