Neopost creates two new functions within its Executive Committee

  • Brandon Batt joins the Neopost Executive Committee as Chief Strategic Initiatives Officer
  • Henri Dura, already a member of the Executive Committee, is appointed Chief Strategic Marketing, Product, Technology and Supply Chain Officer

Paris, November 9, 2018

Neopost, a global leader in digital communications, shipping and mail solutions, is announcing the creation of two new Executive Committee functions.

The new Strategic Initiatives Function has been entrusted to Brandon Batt, who joins the Neopost Executive Committee. Brandon Batt will work with Neopost's various teams to support the Group's strategy and coordinate cross-functional projects and initiatives. He will also lead operations relating to mergers and acquisitions.

Neopost is also creating a Strategic Marketing, Product, Technology and Supply Chain Function, headed by Henri Dura, previously Chief Operating Officer, Enterprise Digital Solutions (Quadient).

Henri Dura will be tasked with forging a common marketing vision by centralizing the development and management of the product portfolio. He will bring the operational teams a consistent and streamlined offer targeting Neopost customers across the globe. He will also work to strengthen synergies both in R&D and in the supply chain. He will be assisted by Thierry Le Jaoudour, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, member of the Group Executive Committee.

The two appointments take immediate effect. Geoffrey Godet, as Chief Executive Officer, takes direct responsibility for the Enterprise Digital Solutions Division (Quadient). In addition, to prepare for the long-planned departure of Dennis LeStrange, set for late January 2019, Geoffrey Godet will also be taking direct responsibility for the SME Solutions Division.

Commenting, Neopost CEO, Geoffrey Godet, said: "Brandon and Henri have all the qualities required to harness the different skill sets at Neopost entities while unlocking the synergies necessary to succeeding in the Group's future strategy. I would like to give my warmest thanks to Dennis for the role he has played in the transformation of our SME Solutions division, after having long and successfully managed our operations in North America."

Neopost's new strategy will be presented at an investors' meeting on January 23, 2019, in Paris.
