Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, has appointed Jean-Patrice Gros as the director of Lectra Northern Europe (United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania).

Based in Belgium, Jean-Patrice Gros will focus on anticipating and responding to Lectra's customers' needs in the fashion, automobile and furniture industries, three strongly developing markets.

Jean-Patrice was previously the director for Middle East and North Africa, where he accompanied Lectra's customers in their strategy of creating value and strengthening their links with European manufacturers. Working at Lectra for the past 30 years, Jean-Patrice has been successively member of the professional services team, responsible for the International Advanced Technology Center of Bordeaux (France), before being appointed head of sales in Canada and director of the Maghreb region, according to a press release.

Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO said, “Jean-Patrice Gros' appointment to the head of this region demonstrates Lectra's strong commitment to developing its activity with brands, retailers and manufacturers. During his career, Jean-Patrice has provided his experience to many diverse-sized companies, with very different processes and business models. His perfect knowledge of Lectra and our industries, as well as his command of our technology are major assets for our customers who are looking for operational excellence.”

Jean-Patrice Gros said, “Many companies in Northern Europe control their production line. Years spent in countries such as Turkey and Tunisia has led me to work directly with companies that pay particular attention to manufacturing processes. Thanks to this experience, I am able to advise export-oriented companies or retailers that aim to develop their own brand, which, today, will be beneficial to Lectra customers in Northern Europe.”(GK)
