Pascal Lecuyot's experience in leading tech teams at Navya, the leader in autonomous vehicles, from the hypergrowth phase to the IPO, makes him a key profile for Preligens.
This appointment is part of Renaud Allioux's drive to structure the Preligens technical team, which now numbers around 100 people. With his experience as well as his knowledge of the development of a disruptive product based on artificial intelligence technologies, Pascal has the know-how that the company needs to support its development.
For Renaud Allioux, CTO of Preligens: "Alongside the data scientists who develop the artificial intelligence algorithms, Preligens is first and foremost a software publisher. We needed a profile like Pascal to head up the Software department and thus give this essential dimension of our business the place and resources it deserves. His experience and his technical and managerial qualities have a lot to offer us in our development phase. Software for the Defense and Intelligence industry involves many more technical challenges for a publisher than any other sector and it is to best respond to it that the team is being strengthened today."

Preligens was created in 2016 by two French engineers, Arnaud Guérin and Renaud Allioux, on the belief that intelligence professionals would never be able to cope with the tsunami of data made available by the huge investments put into sensors.
They came up with the idea of using artificial intelligence (AI) to automate the analysis of this multi-sourced data and direct analysts to unusual events requiring their expertise.
Based in Paris and present in 5 countries, Preligens employs 150 people, mostly scientists who form the largest AI team for Defense in Europe. The performance and accuracy of Preligens' solutions, which are internationally recognized and field-proven, allow its users in the defense sector to be quickly enlightened on complex situations.
Pioneering AI solutions for a safer world.
