Lectra is strengthening its executive committee to accelerate the implementation of its Lectra 4.0 strategy, initiated in early 2017, with the objective of becoming a key player in the Industry 4.0 market. Lectra, based in France, is a leading provider of integrated technology solutions for fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials.

Until now, Lectra’s executive committee was composed of Daniel Harari, Céline Choussy, Edouard Macquin, Jérôme Viala, and Véronique Zoccoletto. In order to accelerate the execution of its strategy, the group has decided to review the organisation of its subsidiaries, refocus efforts toward customer success, and expand its executive committee, which remains under the chairmanship of Daniel Harari, chairman and chief executive officer, according to Lectra.

Jérôme Viala, executive vice president, is now vice-chairman of the executive committee, with increased responsibilities on subsidiary operations, while maintaining his current duties.

Lectra’s subsidiaries are newly organised into four main regions. The purpose is to better adapt the Lectra 4.0 strategy to Lectra’s different markets, accelerate business development and strengthen synergies within each geographical area. The new regions are Americas, led by Edouard Macquin; Asia-Pacific, led by Javier Garcia; Northern & Eastern Europe, Middle East, led by Holger Max-Lang; and Southern Europe & North Africa, led by Fabio Canali. Fabio Canali, Javier Garcia, and Holger Max-Lang join the executive committee.

To be even closer to its customers’ needs and guarantee optimum use of its solutions, Lectra has created the position of chief customer success officer, headed by Laurence Jacquot, who joins the executive committee.

Maximilien Abadie, chief strategy officer, becomes a member of the executive committee, with the mission to support the implementation of the Lectra 4.0 strategy within the group’s teams and prepare the 2020-2022 strategic roadmap. Olivier du Chesnay, chief financial officer, joins the executive committee with the objective to strengthen the fundamentals of Lectra’s economic model.

Céline Choussy, chief marketing and communications officer, will have as her main mission to ensure the launch and development of new offers. Véronique Zoccoletto, chief transformation officer, will focus on escalating Lectra’s ongoing digitalisation and use of the four key technologies.

“Our growth plan is ambitious and we had to put in place a structure that enables us to quickly achieve our objectives. The new dynamic of our regions, together with the creation of a dedicated customer success team, will further strengthen the intimacy we share with our customers. I have worked for a long time with each member of this new executive committee, and I have admired and appreciated over the years their passion for Lectra and the depth and range of their talents. We have a more robust and cohesive management team in which I have every bit of confidence to take Lectra to a new and important stage in its development,” Daniel Harari said. (GK)
