ATTALI, BERNARD (1943– ), French civil servant and businessman, twin brother of Jacques *Attali. Born in Algeria, Bernard Attali studied law and political science in Paris. In 1966, he entered the prestigious Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ena), France's major school for the civil service, and two years later began his career as a high-level civil servant, occasionally working for private and semi-private companies. From 1988 to 1993, he served as managing director of Air France, and eventually published a book about the evolution of French civil aviation in this same period (Les guerres du ciel, 1994).
Attali was honored with the highest French distinctions, Officier de la Legion d' Honneur and Commandeur de l'Ordre National du Mérite.
