Bernard said: “Francois-Regis’ leadership skills and ability to motive and manage people in competitive markets will be a huge asset to the already strong sales force we have. He has the background necessary to help our customers understand the changing times of this dynamic market, especially as we see a shift toward IP, virtualisation and cloud services. We’re delighted to welcome him to our growing team.”

Grenot said: “Globecast has such a solid portfolio and a truly talented leadership team in place that I’m happy to become part of. I’m looking forward to building upon the company’s success in France and working closely with our customers so they can harness the power of IP and the cloud and evolve with the changing times.”
