For the first time in her career, Celine Dion has appointed a new manager, as her husband steps down from the position he has held for more than 30 years.


Rene Angelil will now serve as chairman of Dion's Feeling Productions Inc.


Rene announced that his "long-time close friend, Aldo Giampaolo, has been appointed as chief executive officer of Feeling Productions Inc., the company which manages Celine Dion's career".


Giampaolo has worked with the Quebecois couple for more than 25 years, and will live in Las Vegas, where Dion, a five-time Grammy winner, has performed full-time for more than three years.


Rene had a cancerous tumor removed from his throat in December.
