Laurent Clergue has always been fascinated by space imagery, not with intent to conquer other worlds but rather to provide a deeper understanding of our own planet.

He was responsible for defining the company’s SaaS strategy and developing business in the Public Sector. At the end of his 10-year tenure, more than 1,000 municipalities in France were using GEOSIGWEB solutions.
Laurent enjoys offering IT solutions to problems that didn’t seem to call for spatial and computer technologies. His contributions have made it possible now to monitor precious natural resources in order to safeguard them. He is ever the humanist who met the engineer.
