ALE shakes up leadership team with new hires

12 Sep 16

ALE has announced changes to its senior leadership team, as the company looks to expand its market reach.

Matthieu Destot will lead the company’s global sales & marketing division, while Nicolas Brunel will head up the communications business division.

Destot will take over as executive vice president for Global Sales and Marketing, effective immediately. Destot most recently led the transformation of ALE’s communication business division, placing a focus on specific market segments for growth and accelerating the shift to new business models.

In prior roles, Destot delivered significant revenue and market-share growth achievements as sales leader of the Asia-Pacific and France sales regions for ALE.

Destot will replace Jan Zuurbier, who will continue with the company as an ALE board member. Zuurbier will focus his responsibilities on strategic planning to steer the future of ALE.

Nicolas Brunel, who previously lead the medium, large and vertical (MLV) business unit within the communications business division, steps up to the executive vice president role of the same division, taking over from Destot.

Brunel has previously lead Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s global customer care organisation.

Both Destot and Brunel will be members of the executive management team, reporting to CEO Jack Chen.

“These new appointments will support our efforts as ALE continues to focus its transformation strategy on expanding market reach, improving positioning in vertical sectors, and accelerating the shift to cloud-based business models,” Chen says.
