QUEBEC - The founder of Opsens Inc. (TSXV: OPS) has stepped aside as the company's president and chief executive to help position the company for more global growth with its fibre optic technology.
Louis Laflamme is the new president and CEO, succeeding Pierre Carrier, who will remain chairman of the board of directors. Laflamme was Opsens' chief financial officer.
"Louis is well acquainted with all aspects of Opsens and I am convinced, as are all the members of the board of directors, that he is the best candidate to take Opsens' management to lead it to higher ground," Carrier said Monday.
Opsens said the change in senior management positions the company for growth in fibre optics for the oil and gas and medical instrumentation sectors.
The Quebec City company has appointed Thierry Dumas, who has worked with large technology companies, as its new CFO.
Opsens is a leading developer, manufacturer, supplier and installer of fibre optic technology for the measurement of pressure and temperature.
