Leading business drone producer senseFly has introduced on the Executive VP and COO of senseFly’s mother or father firm Parrot Group, Gilles Labossière, as CEO. Labossière will proceed to carry his place in Parrot Group as he takes the reins at senseFly.
senseFly is well-known for its fixed-wing plane, the eBee. The eBee’s extremely light-weight design and “throw and fly” launch have made it an business chief in agriculture and industrial infrastructure inspection, particularly the place long-range flight is allowed. senseFly’s eBee has led the Parrot Group’s business providing, as the corporate has expanded their product line from leisure bebops to extra prosumer and professional choices.
Labossière, says the corporate press launch, “will focus on
additional boosting senseFly’s development and leveraging its skilled experience throughout Parrot’s wider Business Solutions group.”
“I am excited by the chance to build upon senseFly’s leading position in the fixed-wing drone market,” Labossière stated. “As CEO, my focus will be on continuing to grow the company’s share of the professional drone market and on leveraging its team’s outstanding geospatial and agricultural expertise across the wider Parrot Group. senseFly will, in turn, benefit from our ongoing strengthening of the group’s Business Solutions portfolio, which comprises dedicated drone hardware, software and services.”
He added, “I am sure I speak for everyone when I thank Jean-Christophe for his incredible leadership, dedication and innovation over the years. The departure of a company’s founding CEO is often an emotional time but also part of the ebb and flow of start-up life.”
senseFly’s outgoing CEO and co-founder, Jean-Christophe Zufferey, will work intently alongside Labossière to make sure a clean handover and continuity earlier than he leaves to pursue new challenges.
“I leave senseFly immensely proud of what our team has achieved and I am excited about where the company is headed,” stated Zufferey. “We have a roadmap of truly innovatory drone solutions already in place and with Gilles’ industry experience and knowledge of both our company and Parrot Group he is perfectly positioned to bring these solutions to more and more customers around the world.”
