Eng. dept. Manager & Sofeast COO

Our COO, Fabien Gaussorgues, has 23 years of engineering and operations management experience in Fortune 500 groups (Safran, Thales, Nortel, and Airbus).

He developed subsystems that ended in cars, fighter jets, 3G base stations, and in mobile phones to be used in secured and private networks.
