EVS announces interim CEO

Muriel De Lathouwer has been appointed temporarily as president of the executive committee at EVS, following the resignation of managing director and CEO Joop Janssen.

 Janssen and the Board of Directors mutually agreed to end his term due to differences in view about the implementation of the company’s long term strategy. Although Janssen remains available as an advisor, the agreement is effective as of October 14, 2014.

 Pierre Rion, chairman of the Board of Directors of EVS said, “The entire Board of Directors would like to thank Joop Janssen for his work during the past two years. Under his leadership, the structure of EVS has been strengthened and professionalised, enabling the company to further grow in its four key markets: sports, entertainment, news and media.”

Rion added, “I have great confidence in Muriel De Lathouwer’s capacities to perform this task, in close cooperation with the management team in place.”

De Lathouwer is a member of the Board of Directors of EVS and chairs the strategy committee. During her career, she worked for Accenture, was associate principal at McKinsey and a member of the executive committee at Base. She is an engineer from University of Brussels and holds an MBA from INSEAD.
