SoftAtHome, a software provider for operator CPE devices enabling convergent services for the digital home, today announced that the Board of Directors has elected David Viret-Lange as Chief Executive Officer effective immediately.
“The Board of Directors is delighted that David will lead SoftAtHome as he has an in-depth knowledge of the Telecom industry, after over 20 years spent within the Orange group,” said Mari-Noëlle Jégo-Laveissière, President of the Board of Directors. “It will be key to address the main challenges for SoftAtHome customers, such as improving value proposition in the digital home and maintaining highest level of quality.”
Viret-Lange has over 20 years in the Telecom industry. Firstly in Sales and Marketing of B2B services where he defined offerings related to xDSL technology, bringing operators into the 21st century with ‘full IP’ networks. He then managed the Sales and Service entity in the Consumer market, still accompanying operators in their innovation paths, to lead transition to triple play services. He came back to B2B as CT/CIO of Orange Business Services, and led the transformation of the Orange Business IT organisation to prepare the “softwarisation” of networks through SDN-NFV technologies.
