At the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Lectra SA, Paris/France, held on April 30, 2021 members voted to appoint Céline Abecassis-Moedas as a new independent director. Nominated for a period of 4 years, she becomes a member of the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee and the Strategic Committee.
A major global player in the apparel, automotive and furniture industries, Lectra designs smart industrial solutions – software, equipment, data and services – for brands, manufacturers and retailers.
The appointment of Abecassis-Moedas to Lectra's Board of Directors will notably strengthen the Strategic Committee, which will be called upon to examine an increasing number of investment projects in innovative companies and the continued development of the offers for Industry 4.0.
