Virginie Duperat-Vergne to become Gemalto CFO


Gemalto has announced that Jacques Tierny, CFO of the company, has decided to leave on 31 December 2017 to pursue other activities.

On 16 October 2017, Virginie Duperat-Vergne will join Gemalto, and will become company CFO on 1 January 2018. Virginie Duperat-Vergne will undergo an induction program and a transition period with Jacques Tierny in order to get to know the company better and be ready for her new assignment.

“Jacques has been a key contributor to Gemalto over the last 10 years, overseeing the development and the diversification of the company,” says Philippe Vallee, CEO of Gemalto. “His remarkable expertise in finance, his professionalism as well as his team spirit were instrumental during all these years of intense activity.”

“It has been a real honour and pleasure for me to contribute to the growth and the transformation of Gemalto over the last decade,” says Jacques Tierny.

Jacques will remain an active member of the management team until the end of 2017.

Virginie Duperat-Vergne was group deputy chief financial officer and a member of the senior leadership team at TechnipFMC. During the seven years she spent there, she held various positions in the group finance team from group chief accounting officer to group controller and was involved in the strategy development and overall execution of the recent Technip merger with FMC Technologies. She started her career in 1997 as an external auditor and spent more than 10 years at Arthur Andersen, then Ernst & Young (now EY) before joining Canal + Group as compliance officer for accounting standards.  Virginie holds a master’s degree in management from Toulouse Business School. "Virginie brings impressive experience to Gemalto,” says Philippe Vallée. “She will contribute significantly to the on-going transformation of the company and the new challenges that come with it. I look forward to working with Virginie.”
