In accordance with the announcement made on June 5, 2015, the board of directors has endorsed the decision to split the functions of chairman and of CEO; the CTO Gilles Depeyrot has been named as the latter.
Michel Depeyrot thus remains Chairman of the board, while, from this month of September 2015 on, Gilles Depeyrot performs the function of Dolphin Integration’s CEO.
Gilles Granier, Vice-Chairman of the board of directors, proclaims that "the board is eager to congratulate Michel Depeyrot for his long standing defense, in France, of the industry of design in Microelectronics, thanks to the choice of mixed signal design with ultra low-power consumption, more than ever properly positioned in the era of the Internet of Things."
Agnes Venet, CFO, acknowledges that "the accumulated experience and know-how over thirty years put us in the position admitted worldwide as the forerunners of the Digital Age with Virtual Components of Silicon IP – Intellectual Property! – which had taken to manage the convergence of Securities, Accounting and Tax administrations on a well thought-out model for the valuation of such innovations."
The Chairman, Michel Depeyrot highlights: "I had assigned to myself the managerial objective of transferring the helm after having founded all the key functions required for our specific trades, in order to ensure a healthy growth, especially on international markets. As for the unfavorable context for enterprises in which we have had to progress for 30 years, I appreciate that times are changing for the best about these French handicaps with the SME Pact balancing the relationships with large companies, with the rehabilitation of the value of work, and with the action of BPI-France to rationalize and help the funding of innovation. But the lasting presence of our company’s founders bears witness to our soundness."
Along this line, Jean-François Pollet, Sales Director for Integration Services, adds that "our company, as supplier of real custom integrated circuits, has reached an important presence on strategic markets as Defense and Aeronautics in Europe.
What is more, it contributes an activity mostly at export, and counts among its customers the world leaders in their respective domains, while it also continuously contributes to the evolution of the French micro-nano ecosystem, strongly inserted on the Grenoble substrate."
As Sales Director for the Supply Chain, Louis Zangara observes that "we must extend our offering of Foundry Portal to start-ups which proliferate in this Digital Age, but which cannot encumber themselves with the contingencies of fabrication management."
