Gianfranco Lanci, senior VP and president of Lenovo EMEA

Lenovo has announced new leaders for North America and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), following a recent realignment of its business groups and geographies to drive greater consistency, synergy and focus across the world.

In a new leadership role, Aymar de Lencquesaing, currently President of EMEA, has been named President of Lenovo North America effective today.  Lencquesaing joined Lenovo in late 2013 to lead the company’s drive in the mobile space in EMEA and lay the foundation for company’s expansion plans.

Under his leadership, Lenovo in EMEA reached a record high 19.7% PC share in FYQ3; achieved a 40% year-on-year increase in revenue in FYQ3; contributes nearly a third (29%) of Lenovo’s worldwide revenues; sells more tablets than any other Lenovo geography, and has expanded the smartphone business to nearly 50 countries in EMEA.

Lenovo also announced the appointment of Eric Cador as the Senior Vice President and President of EMEA effective May 1st. Cador is a global executive leader with 30 years of experience in leadership positions in the IT market.  Under his leadership, HP reached the number one position in EMEA.  Cador’s deep knowledge of the IT sector and business management as well as operational and strategic experience in design, supply chain and go to market strategies will ensure Lenovo’s path of success and momentum in EMEA continues.

Commenting on the new appointments, Gianfranco Lanci, President & COO Lenovo Group, said: “We are proud to have the most diverse, experienced and talented leadership team in our industry – and this is a core competitive strength for Lenovo.  We can attract great talent because our business is strong, our strategy is clear and our opportunity looking forward is substantial.”
