However, broadcaster France Bleu reported on Tuesday that a man fitting Wang's description had fallen more than 10 meters (33 feet) to his death while attempting to take a photo from a wall.
But it racked up huge debts in the process and has since reversed course, selling assets to ease financial pressures as authorities in China cracked down on aggressive overseas deal-making by Chinese companies.
Wang suffered the fatal accident yesterday in the picturesque hillside village of Bonnieux after climbing onto a parapet, either to see the view of the valley below or to have his photograph taken, local security sources told AFP.
The company did not give the circumstances of Wang's death or provide an exact location.

"Wang Jian's death will definitely bring short-term shocks to HNA's business development", said Liu Feng, director of the Hainan Normal University Free Trade Port Research Center.

For a co-founder of a regional airline in China, Wang Jian's rise to prominence in worldwide business might come as a surprise to many.
Wang, who held a stake of just under 15 per cent in the group, was in charge of its strategy and ran day-to-day operations, sources familiar with the matter have said, while his fellow chairman Chen was often the public face of the conglomerate.
Launched in 1993 on the southern island of Hainan, HNA expanded into finance, hotels, logistics and other businesses in a multibillion-dollar global acquisition spree in recent years.
Wang began his career in civil aviation planning in 1983.
