Sigfox has announced the appointment of Jeremy Prince to lead operations at the global IoT network provider.
Prince replaces Ludovic le Moan who co-founded Sigfox and served as its CEO since December 2010.
“I wish the very best to Jeremy and I am confident that he will lead Sigfox to the next level” said le Moan.
Anne Lauvergeon, Chairman of Sigfox, commented:
“We have the greatest gratitude for Ludovic’s leadership of Sigfox for the past 10 years.
Ludovic has undeniably been the vision behind Sigfox’s successes and his legacy will be felt far and wide. We thank him deeply for his contributions.”
Prince first joined Sigfox as Chief Strategy Officer in 2018 and has been part of the company’s Executive Committee since. In March 2019, he became president of Sigfox USA.
On his appointment as CEO, Prince said:
“I’m proud to become the leader of this fantastic company that created the 0G network and made IoT a reality that helps businesses every day.
I am thrilled to be able to follow in Ludovic Le Moan’s footsteps and to work with the outstanding team of professionals who are one of Sigfox’s core assets and who contribute on a daily basis to making Sigfox a unique adventure and a reference on the market.”
The company’s board of directors unanimously-approved Prince’s appointment.
“Jeremy’s success and experience in leading companies through the evolution of their business models was a deciding factor in our highly selective process that included several external candidates,” commented Lauvergeon.
“The board is confident that Prince, with Franck Siegel as Deputy CEO, will efficiently carry out Sigfox’s mission of digitising the physical world while remaining fully committed to delivering the benefits of IoT in a manner that respects and sustains our environment.”
Prince inherits a company in great shape. Sigfox’s global 0G IoT network supports more than 17 million connected devices and handles 60 million messages per day.
