said Friday the president and managing director of Manpower France, Jean-Pierre Lemonnier, has left the company.

The company has initiated a search to find a replacement for Lemonnier, who led the company's French operations since 2002.

Manpower appointed Jean-Francois Ferret as interim president of Manpower France, effective immediately. Ferret joined the company in June 2005 as deputy general manager of Manpower France.

"Demand for our services has strengthened this year. We expect our French revenue growth in the second quarter to equal or exceed the upper end of our previously issued guidance of 7-9% in constant currency over prior year," the Glendale, Wis.-based company said.

The company's stock was down 22 cents, or 0.3%, to $64.73 in recent trading.
