Thales has elected Patrice Caine as a new Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, following the resignations of Philippe Logak, who served as Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.
As such, he was mandated to prepare the separation of the Chief Executive Officer role, which he will hold, and the Chairman of the Board role, which will be held by Henri Proglio.
Both appointments are subject to confirmation by the next Annual General Meeting, which will also be asked to approve the necessary changes to the company's articles of incorporation.
“Thales is one of the most innovative and dynamic companies in our industry. I am very proud to be given the opportunity to lead our Group whilst benefitting from the knowledge and experience of Henri Proglio. With the combined skills and commitment of every Thales employee and the Group’s Executive Committee, I am more determined than ever to continue to develop Thales’s position as a global leader in aerospace, transportation, defence and security” Patrice Caine said.
