Netia has selected Thierry Gandilhon as its new managing director.
Gandilhon — who will be based in Netia’s head office in Claret, France — brings to the firm more than 25 years of technical experience in the field of software development, as well as a strong record of establishing and building successful technology companies, says Netia.
“Thierry is an exciting addition to the company, as he has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to lead companies to success through technical excellence,” said Philippe Fort, Netia president. “His tremendous experience developing computer software in multicultural environments and his dedication to using complex technologies to create simple yet powerful solutions make him a smart fit for Netia, and we’re looking forward to achieving further success with the benefit of his guidance.”
Prior to joining Netia, Gandilhon co-founded Eptica, a European provider of multichannel customer interaction software, where he served as executive vice president and chief technology officer (CTO). He earlier served as vice president and CTO at MATRAnet; CTO at Step One/Sharing Technologies; and R&D director at Business Objects.
