Our leadership team
Hugues has two passions: technology and business development. After 10 years working in France, he goes abroad to work for a product certification company. At the helm of a team of 50 people, he multiplies by 9 the turnover of his business unit in only 5 years, bringing it to more than 9M of dollars.
In 2015, Hugues is looking for a new challenge. He meets Georges Gagnerot and together they co-found eShard, both driven by the desire to disrupt the security market by offering a real support on the issues of securing connected objects and mobile applications.
Hugues is CEO of the company and is responsible for eShard's business development and customer relations.
Georges is passionate about technology. At age 10, he already dismantled his first computer to understand how it worked and had fun challenging the backups and security of the video games he was playing. After a thesis in embedded security, he held several positions related to computer security.
In 2015, he decided to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure of eShard alongside Hugues Thiebeauld, with whom he shares strong values and a taste for excellence.
He holds the position of CTO and manages the company's wide technical panel, in addition to all the R&D efforts.
