ESCATEC names new CEO to lead future growth
Integrated electronics manufacturing services provider, ESCATEC, has named its new chief executive officer. Charles-Alexandre Albin, after many years across numerous roles within the organisation, will take the helm as the CEO of the ESCATEC Group, from 31st March 2024.
The company said the transition signifies a natural progression within the privately owned, family run business and reaffirms the Groups dedication to providing enduring stability and prosperity for all stakeholders. Albin has nurtured strong relationships across all levels and departments within the organisation during his extensive tenure, which began back in 2013 and has played a pivotal role in the company’s growth so far.
Albin’s journey with ESCATEC encompasses a wealth of experiences as a board member, executive director, contributor as the leader of mergers and acquisitions and in his previous role as chief sales officer. His academic background consisting of a BSc in Engineering and Business Studies from the University of Warwick along with previous business acumen serving as an investment banker in the industrial M&A team at J.P. Morgan in London, make him a well-rounded leader, uniquely prepared for this role.
The ESCATEC board extended their gratitude to current CEO Ernest Sebak, who has been guiding Albin towards the role of CEO. ESCATEC has a longstanding tradition of being a family-centric enterprise. Albin will continue this legacy, maintaining the ethos that has made the organisation a welcoming and nurturing environment for all.
Charles-Alexandre Albin said: “As the son of the founder, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing our business from the early days and of course actively participating in its growth over the past decades. My roles as executive director, board member, and leader in M&A and business development have given me profound insights, which I believe will equip me to lead the organization effectively. I’m dedicated to ensuring quality, timely delivery, exceptional customer service, and the sustained development of our group, infusing it with renewed vitality. I take immense pride and feel truly honoured to collaborate with the exceptionally talented leadership team at ESCATEC, as well as the experts within each independent business unit and our corporate office.”
ESCATEC has been in rapid expansion mode with the Group making major investments to acquire the latest technologies and capabilities, as well as expanding its global design and footprint. The Group currently has a workforce of 2,500 plus employees with production facilities in Malaysia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, and the Czech Republic, with additional strategic partnerships in Croatia and the United States.
