Vergnet: the departure of the CEO and the division of his duties

(AOF) – Vergnet’s board of directors has made the decision to divide the duties of the Chairman and CEO to better meet the company’s needs in a future affected by high inflation and the war in Ukraine. Patrick Werner, Chairman and CEO to date, is leaving the group and being replaced by Cyril Corton, Non-Executive Chairman and Cyril Lederan, CEO.

An engineer by training and holder of a Master’s degree in Innovation Management from Grenoble Ecole de Management, Cyril Courtonne now runs his own consulting firm specializing in the creation, development and restructuring of high-potential companies. He started his career in cross-functional technical/sales/marketing positions within industry groups such as SAGEM before launching his first digital company in 2009 and reselling it in 2018.

Cyril Lederan was appointed CEO on May 19, and he brings recognized experience in turnaround companies. After sales and marketing responsibilities in highly organized international groups, he joined more entrepreneurial structures over 20 years ago. He has solid experience in all areas of public administration.

Backed by their expertise, Cyril Corton and members of the Board of Directors expressed their confidence in Cyril Lederan to manage the group. They set themselves two missions.

This includes, on the one hand, the development of a profitable and sustainable strategy based on Vergnet’s DNA, in particular on its technological expertise in an environment conducive to renewable energies,

It’s also an audit and more specifically the current year’s budget drawn up by the former CEO. Even in the presence of positive elements, the stated positive outlook must be validated.
