IDEMIA’s change in top management and view building on its leadership in augmented identity

IDEMIA’s change in top management and view building on its leadership in augmented identity
Didier LAMOUCHE, CEO of IDEMIA, announced the appointment of two new members of IDEMIA’s Executive Committee.
Didier LAMOUCHE, CEO of IDEMIA, announced the appointment of two new members of IDEMIA’s Executive Committee. Philippe BARREAU (formerly MD of SICPA SA, a Swiss company providing secured identification and authentication solutions and services) will head up both the Citizen Identity and Public Security business units as Group Executive Vice-President, while Ed CASEY (former Chief Operating Officer of Serco, a UK-based global provider of public services in various areas, including citizen services) is appointed CEO of the Noram Identity & Security business unit.

Pierre BARRIAL (who was running the Mobile Operators business) is appointed Group Executive Vice-President of the Financial Institutions business unit. He has a successful record of accomplishment in managing organizations in challenging technology environments across multiple companies.

Fabien JAUTARD, who was previously managing the Mobile Operators activity in the Asia Pacific Region, replaces Pierre BARRIAL as Executive Vice-President of the Mobile Operators business unit. Fabien JAUTARD will also join IDEMIA’s Executive Committee.

IDEMIA currently operates in 180 countries, where it employs 14,000 people. In an ever more competitive market, the firm has also decided to strengthen its regional structure and has appointed new Presidents in charge of two regions. Eric DUFOREST, previously in charge of driving the global Financial Institutions activity, will now manage the Asia-Pacific Region. His recent success heading IDEMIA’s Financial Institutions business for five years makes Eric DUFOREST the ideal candidate to lead the group growth effort in the APAC Region. Marcello BELLINI, in charge of the Financial Institutions operations in Latin America, will also take the role as of now of President of the Latin America Region.

Philippe D'ANDREA is appointed European region President on top of his duties as Global Operations manager. His role will be to roll out and communicate the group strategy throughout the Region.

All the above appointments take effect immediately.

The result of the coming together, in May 2017, of OT (Oberthur Technologies) and Safran Identity & Security (Morpho), the new IDEMIA identity was unveiled on 28th September 2017. It is the global leader in Augmented Identity for an increasingly digital world, with a view to provide citizens and consumers with end-to-end full-secured solutions, when they interact, pay, connect, travel and vote.

IDEMIA will also continue to invest in R&D to develop high-tech future game-changing innovations and solutions amounting to €1bn over five years, by tapping into the strengths and know-how of the two companies that formed IDEMIA, while serving both public and private sector customers.
