“We strongly believe Laurent is the right CEO for the next stage of transformation and growth of Ingenico,” says Catherine Guillouard, Chairwoman and an independent supervisory board member.
“His extensive experience in enterprise management solutions, cloud-based services, and ecosystem enablement make him the ideal candidate to lead our organisation through its transformation to an integrated solutions focused leader in payments.”
“We are confident in his ability to drive growth and deliver exceptional value to our clients and partners. With Laurent at the helm, we are excited to continue innovating and transforming the payment industry, and we look forward to the successes that we will achieve together.”
Gerrard Schmid and Rolf Stangl will step down as co-CEOs and will continue with their roles as members of Ingenico’s supervisory board.
They comment: “We are honoured to have had the opportunity to lead Ingenico during this interim period, and we are thrilled to welcome Laurent Blanchard as our new CEO. Laurent’s extensive experience and leadership skills are precisely what we need to drive our transformation.”
“We are confident that his passion for innovation and sustainability, coupled with his global experience, will enable us to create new opportunities for growth and deliver exceptional value to our employees, clients, and partners.”
“We look forward to working alongside Laurent as we continue to transform the payments industry and build a brighter future for all.”
Blanchard says: “Ingenico has an exceptional team of talented individuals and leading technologies that we can leverage to assist our clients and partners in navigating the rapidly evolving payments industry.”
“We have an extraordinary opportunity to help our clients drive their businesses forward, while taking Ingenico’s business to a whole new level.”
