Yann Delabrière appointed IDEMIA CEO

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

IDEMIA announced that Yann Delabrière has been appointed CEO replacing Didier Lamouche who has resigned.

Lamouche led IDEMIA from its launch following the merger of Oberthur Technologies and Safran Identity & Security and prior to that was at the helm of Oberthur Technologies for five years.

Delabrière will be charged with overseeing a new phase in IDEMIA’s growth as the company looks to benefit from Delabrière’s past experience as CEO of Faurecia and CEO of Zodiac Aerospace. He has headed IDEMIA’s Supervisory Board since January 2018.

“I am delighted that the Supervisory Board is entrusting me with this new role, and am excited to be leading IDEMIA as it enters the next phase of its development,” commented Delabrière. “I have witnessed IDEMIA’s growth potential first hand and believe it is excellently poised to continue to consolidate its position as the leader in the sector.”

Earlier this month IDEMIA opened its APAC headquarters and Innovation Center in Singapore.
