Organizational changes

I’m proud to announce that two of our fellow workers were asked to assume new responsibilities:

  • Léon Duvivier, director of the product line Sustainable Process Technologies and manager of the Business Development department, will fulfil from 01.07.2012 the function of Technology Director within the “Direction Recherche & Innovation” of GDF SUEZ.
  • Emmanuel De Jaeger, scientific director, is entrusted from 01.09.2012 with the chair of Professor of Electrical Energy at the UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain). He will continue to work closely with Laborelec.

The Laborelec organization is adapted as follows:

  • Coralie Goffin becomes director of the product line Sustainable Process Technologies from 01.07.2012
  • Guy Dreessen takes on the responsibility of the Research Program Management department  from 01.07.2012; he becomes a member of the Management Team.
  • Randy Stiens is in charge of the Business Development activities from 01.07.2012 and reports to Hans De Rouck.
  • Etienne Pierson will assume, in addition to his current function, the role of Scientific Director of Laborelec from 01.09.2012.

The new organization will enable Laborelec to steadily strengthen its position and to continue to pursue its strategy with proven success: develop expertise in the complete value chain of electricity, with a combination of research and services, on a rapidly growing international market, and operating as independent business entity, but firmly rooted in both GDF SUEZ BEE Metier Generation and GDF Suez “Direction Recherche & Innovation”.
