Lectra’s Shareholders’ Meeting held on June 1 appointed Jean Marie (“John”) Canan as a new Director, for a period of four years.
Jean Marie Canan becomes a member of Lectra’s Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Strategic Committee.
This appointment follows the agreement reached for the acquisition by Lectra of Gerber Technology, of which American Industrial Partners (AIP) was the sole shareholder.
A major global player in the fashion, automotive and furniture industries, Lectra designs smart industrial solutions – software, equipment, data and services – for brands, manufacturers and retailers.
Daniel Harari, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lectra said “We are delighted to welcome Jean Marie Canan to Lectra’s Board of Directors. The Group will benefit from his extensive experience in finance, mergers and acquisitions, and post-acquisition integration.”
The appointment of Jean Marie Canan as Director, after that of Céline Abecassis-Moedas on April 30, will notably strengthen Lectra’s Strategic Committee, at a time when Lectra will be developing new offers for Industry 4.0 and examining an increasing number of investment projects in innovative companies.
