Pierre Pasquier, Chairman of the Board of Directors said:
"I would like to pay tribute to the work Christophe Fabre carried out over more than 20 years at Sopra, and then Axway, and in particular, to his vital contribution to the Company's international development and the success of the IPO. His commitment and dynamism were key to the Company and I would like to thank him warmly for his work. The appointment of Jean-Marc Lazzari as Chief Executive Officer of Axway is part of a new stage in Axway's development project. His solid experience as a "Corporate entrepreneur", in both start-up technologies and large divisions of multinational groups, is a strength enabling him to drive the implementation phase of Axway's new strategy in the global software publishing market."
