Tereos board meeting names Clay chairman, changes CEO -Clay lawyer

PARIS, Dec 18 (Reuters) - An extraordinary board meeting of sugar group Tereos on Friday elected Gerard Clay as chairman, his lawyer said, hours after a court rejected a request by the group to suspend Clay.

The meeting also decided to dismiss Chief Executive Alexis Duval and name Philippe de Raynal as his successor with immediate effect, Thibault Guillemin, the lawyer representing Clay and two other members that Tereos had sought to oust, told Reuters.

A Tereos spokesman could not be reached immediately for comment.
