At the Annual General Assembly of 30th June 2016 held at the Ecole Militaire, Stéphane Mayer, CEO of Nexter Systems, was unanimously elected as Chairman of the Groupement des Industries Françaises de Défense et de Sécurité Terrestres et Aéroterrestres (GICAT, a trade body representing the interests of the French land and air-land defence and security industry). He takes over from Stefano Chmielewski, who, since being appointed in June 2014, has reformed the organisation, embracing greater visibility and modernising its governance.

The change in Chairman reflects a desire to extend the reach of the French land and air-land defence and security industry – a strategically important sector for France.

Amid the current highly complex national and international environment, efforts will need to be made to promote the land defence and security equipment challenges, harness greater synergies between all the industry partners and champion “France’s national team” consisting of all the organisation’s key contributors – industry majors, mid-market companies, and small- and medium-sized businesses.

Stéphane Mayer commented that he was “very proud that GICAT’s members had placed their trust in [him]. Representing and promoting the French land defence and security industry is a real challenge given the issues facing our country. [He] will devote all [his] energy to raising the profile of French Known-How, which is strategically important for our economy.

About GICAT
GICAT (Groupement des Industries Françaises de Défense et de Sécurité Terrestres et Aéroterrestres) is a trade body founded in 1978 with a membership of 200 major groups, mid-market companies, and small- and medium-sized businesses. Their broad spectrum of production, research, service and consulting activities support national and international defence and civil forces involved in providing land and air-land defence and security. The international Eurosatory trade event organised by COGES, its subsidiary, is the cornerstone of GICAT’s international reach and is backed up by a number of other international defence and/or security trade fairs.
