Vallourec, a world leader in premium tubular solutions, has announced the appointment of Naïla Giovanni as Chief Digital & Information Systems Officer. She joins the Group’s Executive Committee.
As the head of a global Department, composed of an international team bringing together various centers of expertise, Naïla Giovanni will coordinate and implement the Group’s digital strategy.
Faced with the strategic challenge of digitising its operations, Vallourec has been pursuing an ambitious digital programme for several years now, with three fundamental pillars: connecting customers with Vallourec plants and products; using the power of data to optimise the Group’s production facilities; and instilling a digital culture within the company.
“Our Group has embarked on a process of deep change. I am convinced that digital technology and information systems are critical levers for our development and competitiveness. Naïla will have a major role to play in pursuing this transformation, for which her solid experience will be key,” said Edouard Guinotte, Chairman of the Management Board.
Today more than ever, the objective of the Digital & Information Systems Department is to leverage new technologies to support the Group’s major stakes.
“The digital transformation initiated by the Group now needs to be accelerated, scaled up and deep rooted in the company’s ways of working. This will support the Group’s sustainability by making our organisation even more efficient, and by opening up new business opportunities for the benefit of our long-standing and future customers, particularly in the field of energy transition and services,” says Naïla Giovanni.
Previously Chief Transformation Officer, Naïla Giovanni is graduated in economics and finance, and boasts more than twenty-five years of expertise in transformation, digital technology, and information systems, acquired at the Oracle Group, Arthur Andersen (now BearingPoint), and Vallourec, which she joined in 2013.
