President & Chief Executive Officer
After a short period in the marketing department of a national IT services company, Frederic Lasnier founded Pentalog in 1993 together with four colleagues, academics like himself. During a period of economic stagnation (in 1995) Frederic was encouraged to guide the company to markets in which offers were scarce or lacking altogether: client-server, micro - UNIX and the internet. Here, everything could be done and the offer was so rare that even a small organization could find its place.
In 1995, he decided to open permanently the capital of Pentalog to the participation of his employees. This participation has now reached 56%. It was a political vision that he shared with the founding members. Starting from 1997, Pentalog searched for their first services outside of France. The percentage of foreign activities subsequently reached 60% in 2006.
In 1999, as part of a large software project (10 000 man-days in J2EE), he made his first trip to Romania and laid the foundation for the Pentalog policy of European "low cost".
In 2005, he initiated the creation of BPO services (Business Process Outsourcing) and implemented the New Pentalog Business Model.
In 2006, with the help of Ausy, one of the 5 most important players in the French market of outsourced R&D services, he created Pentalog Technology, a venture by Ausy and Pentalog, co-owned equally by the two partners. The Joint Venture aims to provide low cost but high quality R&D services to global players. Frédéric Lasnier took operational control of this alliance.
In 2008, Pentalog Deutschland, the German subsidiary of the group was created. In 2009, Frederic founded Pentalog Vietnam. In all these areas, the management is provided from Orleans and it is here that 70% of the consolidated value is held.
Monica has been Pentalog's Deputy CEO since August 2011. She is in charge of operational management, including the management of production and production structures, financial and reporting management, administration and development of existing partnerships, supervision of the information systems, technical management and the incubator.
Previously, Monica held the position of Chief Operating Officer (May 2009-July 2011).
Monica joined Pentalog in 2003 as a Marketing trainee in Orléans. Several months later, the former Romanian student returned to Brasov as supervisor of the marketing operations of the group.
In 2004, Monica took over the management of the new Bucharest office and dealt particularly with the management of human resources (recruiting high-level consultants in particular) and the budget and with the development of the local market.
In 2007, she was entrusted with the commercial management of Eastern Europe and her responsibilities now included the marketing of Pentalog offshore activities in Europe. Gradually, Monica would manage all operational activities in Eastern Europe and coordinate the strategic development of offices in this region, by collaborating with local directors.
At the beginning of 2009, Monica went on a four-month trip to Hanoi (Vietnam) to assist in the implementation of operational processes in our first Asian office, coordinate the first recruitment activities and deploy our best practices within the local management and production processes.
Monica is a member of the Board of Directors and the Management Committee.
