Muriel de Lathouwer follows Joop Janssen as EVS managing director & CEO
EVS Broadcast Equipment has announced the appointment of Muriel De Lathouwer as managing director & CEO of the company. De Lathouwer served as interim president of the Executive Committee of EVS since the departure of Joop Janssen in October 2014. She has been a member of the EVS board of directors since November 2013, also chairing its Strategic Committee.
De Lathouwer started her career as IT Consultant at Accenture, before spending seven years at McKinsey in Brussels (she was Associate Principal between 2006 and 2008, specialised in telecom, high tech and media sectors). Between 2008 and 2009, she was chief marketing officer of the mobile telecom operator BASE (subsidiary of KPN).
Then, before taking over her executive role at EVS in 2014, she was managing director (and co-founder) of an engineering consultancy firm in energy and environmental matters. She is an engineer in Nuclear Physics (ULB, Brussels), and holds an MBA from Insead (Paris). She is a member of Women on Board (a Belgian and European network of women members of Board of Directors), and is a member of the Board of Directors of Amoobi, a technology company specializing in customer flow analytics.
“Since joining the Board of Directors of EVS in November 2013, I’ve had the opportunity to appreciate the quality and unrivalled reliability of EVS solutions, as well as the company’s strong innovative drive. The past four months have reinforced my understanding of the very solid fundamentals of EVS: high professional skills, a strong culture, engagement of the entire staff to meet customer requirements, and above everything, the passion the employees have for what they do and strive to achieve every day,” she said. “Today, I’m very happy to be able to pursue, as CEO, what has been initiated with the Executive Committee over the last few months.”
