Philippe Carette is to succeed Dominique Giannoni as chief executive officer to lead the InFlyt Experience business. Giannoni managed the successful growth of Thales InFlyt Experience during a five-year period and moves to a new leadership role within Thales.
“Philippe is a veteran of the aerospace industry and a proven leader in shaping strong businesses,” said Thales Avionics executive vice-president Gil Michielin. “His expertise in innovative advanced technologies will also help drive our continued digital transformation and long-term growth strategy.”
Carette will drive the company’s strategic corporate transformation initiatives within the business to spur greater competitiveness and long-term market leadership. He will also steer the digitalisation of the connectivity and entertainment systems portfolio to deliver unique value to airline customers in a rapidly evolving cabin environment. This includes the recently introduced InFlyt360 digital platform, which allows airlines to continuously improve the passenger experience with features such as personalisation, monetisation, fresh and dynamic content and optimised engagement.
