EVS Broadcast Equipment has appointed Muriel De Lathouwer as Managing Director & CEO.

Ms De Lathouwer was serving as interim president of the Executive Committee of EVS on an interim basis since the departure of Joop Janssen in October 2014.

She has been a member of the EVS Board of Directors since November 2013, also chairing its Strategic Committee.

"Since joining the Board of Directors of EVS in November 2013, I've had the opportunity to appreciate the quality and unrivalled reliability of EVS solutions, as well as the company's strong innovative drive," she said. "The past four months have reinforced my understanding of the very solid fundamentals of EVS: high professional skills, a strong culture, engagement of the entire staff to meet customer requirements, and above everything, the passion the employees have for what they do and strive to achieve every day," said Muriel De Lathouwer. "Today, I'm very happy to be able to pursue, as CEO, what has been initiated with the Executive Committee over the last few months."

Pierre Rion, chairman of the Board of Directors of EVS, said: "This appointment is the result of a recruitment process initiated in October last year, combined with the way Muriel rapidly federated the management team. During the interim, she demonstrated that, in addition to the strategic competences we already knew from her role in the Board of Directors, she has all the necessary managerial skills to bring EVS to new levels."
