I felt it was very important to involve Jérôme even more in our new industrial adventure. Jerome and I have worked together for 26 years. During these years, I have appreciated his rigour, his ability to make decisions and stand by them, and his many human qualities.”

Jérôme Viala said, “Lectra’s upcoming strategic cycle, to be presented on February 9, 2017, will be exciting due to the highly innovative way it creates value for our customers, and for the Group. I am thrilled about the opportunity to support the implementation of our new roadmap in its many aspects.” (GK)
