Pascal Juery.

Following a “rigorous selection process,” the Board of Directors of Agfa-Gevaert, headquartered in Mortsel, Belgium, has appointed Pascal Juery as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. He’ll succeed current CEO Christian Reinaudo on February 1, 2020. Fifty-four-year-old Juery was born in Paris, France, and is a graduate of the ESCP Business School. He brings more than 30 years of experience in the chemical and advanced materials industries to his new position. Juery started his career in finance and soon demonstrated his ability to lead various global businesses, as well as hold key functional responsibilities. For the past 10 years, he was a member of the Executive Committee of Rhodia and then Solvay, where he took an active part in their group portfolios and business transformations. “I’m proud to join Agfa-Gevaert, a leading global high-tech company that has successfully re-positioned itself in the digital world,” Juery said. “I look forward to continuing the transformation process with Agfa-Gevaert’s talented team and, in doing so, delivering sustainable and profitable growth.”

Klaus Röhrig, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Agfa-Gevaert, added: “We’re happy to welcome Pascal Juery as the new CEO at a decisive moment in the Group’s transformation process. His previous experience in the executive management of an international company in the middle of a transformation journey, will enable him to lead Agfa-Gevaert in its fast-changing markets. The Board of Directors would like to thank Christian Reinaudo for his commitment and valuable contribution as CEO to Agfa-Gevaert’s development over the past decade. He took the position of CEO on May 1 of 2010 under difficult circumstances. Following the global economic crisis in 2008-2009, he managed to stabilize the company and restore profitability. He implemented a growth strategy for all the business activities of the Group that, as the results of the last two quarters show, is starting to bear fruit. With the planned divestment of part of Agfa HealthCare’s IT activities in view, the company will have the necessary resources to further develop these growth strategies.”
