French technology firm iXblue announced the appointment of Thomas Buret as Chief Operating Officer, taking over from Fabien Napolitano, who takes up duties as Chief Executive Officer of the Group.

Since joining iXblue in 2002 as an R&D engineer, Buret has made a considerable contribution to the company's development and to making iXblue a world leader in inertial navigation, the company said. Previously in charge of the company's space and then maritime activities, he has been the head of the navigation department since 2017.

For Fabien Napolitano, "it has always been in iXblue’s DNA to provide customers with new solutions, enabling them to go a step further and make their dreams become reality. In the fields of maritime applications, photonics and technologies related to autonomy, we believe that iXblue can help customers to meet their challenges and push the limits of what is possible. Thomas’ talents and expertise combined with his in-depth knowledge of the company and our markets are great assets which will enable us to pursue our development while leading us towards new challenges and further success."
