LACROIX CONTINUES ITS STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT
AND REINFORCE ITS MANAGEMENT TEAM
Through its Leadership 2025 strategic plan, launched in April 2021, LACROIX intends to almost double in size. This ambition is driven by an expansion in strategic international markets, together with the strengthening of its technological and operational leadership.
In order to support its strong development, LACROIX is reinforcing its management team, with the appointment of Stéphane KLAJZYNGIER as President of LACROIX North America, Louis POURDIEU, as Executive General Manager of the Electronics activity in the EMEA zone, and finally Serge LAVERDURE, to manage LACROIX Design Center.
Supporting the Group’s strategic international deployment
The acquisition of Firstronic in the United States at the end of December 2021, now allows the Electronics activity to address a new domestic market, which has significant commercial potential. By building up a strategic position in North America, LACROIX has reached an important milestone in the international development of its activities.
To support this strategy, LACROIX is launching a new dedicated organisation, and appointing Stéphane KLAJZYNGIER. Currently Executive Managing Director of the Electronics activity, Stéphane now becomes President of LACROIX North America. He will be based in Michigan (United States), as of 1 October 2022 and will be responsible for supporting the integration of Firstronic into the Electronics activity as well as the local development of the Environment and City activities, notably through targeted acquisitions.
He holds an MBA in Finance from Pace University in New York and has occupied several management positions with an international scope in the telecommunications world.
In the 90’s, his initial experience in the field of portable batteries led him to Japan where he worked for Saft. Later, Alcatel entrusted him with the implantation of its Mobile Phones division in China, from the implementation of R&D to marketing. A division of which he later became President. During this period, he also concluded a joint venture with TCL.
In 2005, he became President and CEO of Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a group specialised in mobile telecommunication and broadcast infrastructures, with a strong presence in Germany, United States, France, China, Brazil and Australia.
He joined LACROIX on June 1st, 2015, as Managing Director of the Electronics activity, becoming Executive Managing Director in July 2018.
Stéphane KLAJZYNGIER said, “After 7 years at the head of the Electronics activity, I am delighted to be given the opportunity of this new challenge. I am looking forward to working with the teams to carry on the integration process of Firstronic, now LACROIX Electronics North America and to accompany the Group’s future developments in North America.”
Striving for operational excellence in the Electronics activity in EMEA
LACROIX also announces the arrival of Louis POURDIEU to take over from Stéphane KLAJZYNGIER as Executive Managing Director of LACROIX’s Electronics activity in the EMEA zone – an operational position effective as of September 15th, 2022. As a member of LACROIX Executive Committee, Louis POURDIEU will be entitled with the execution of the activity’s strategic plan, with ambitious objectives in terms of customer satisfaction and operational performance.
As a graduate of Centrale Paris and holder of an MBA from INSEAD, Louis POURDIEU has more than 25 years of experience in operational departments of major groups in the automotive sector — for companies such as Faurecia and Valeo — where he held the position of CEO of the JV between Valeo and Siemens in the field of high voltage transmission components.
In response to his appointment, Louis POURDIEU said: “I am proud to join LACROIX and to accompany its development with these passionate teams. The positioning and expertise of the Electronics activity are indisputable assets to support our customers”
Strengthening LACROIX technological leadership in design
Finally, as a major pillar of its strategic plan, the Group is strengthening the Electronics activity design offer management team, by appointing Serge LAVERDURE as its head, as of September 12th, 2022.

Belgian Commitment to Partnership Supports a New Frontier of Europe-US Space Research
BRUSSELS, Dec. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo has travelled to Houston, United States, to meet Raphaël Liégeois, the Belgian career astronaut selected as part of the European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut class of 2022. De Croo’s visit coincides with the ESA cohort’s familiarisation trip to NASA’s Johnson Space Centre, which is the precursor to a further two years of training, delivered in Houston, to prepare the astronauts for their respective missions on the International Space Station. The visit signals a new phase of the long-standing collaboration between Europe and the United States on space research and exemplifies Belgium’s commitment to partnerships in facing global challenges.
Belgium’s expertise in aerospace, and in science more generally, is internationally recognised – in terms of both training and industry. Belgium is a founding member of the ESA and its fifth-largest funder. The country’s support of the ESA shows its commitment to shaping the development of Europe’s space capability and ensuring that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
“For Belgians, the sky isn’t the limit, the universe is,” said De Croo. “Today, we are very proud to see Raphaël take this important step in his career as an astronaut. He will be an important role model for many generations of STEM students to come. Space research and innovation hold particular importance for Belgium; they are powerful economic drivers which foster the growth of high-tech industries and create jobs – as evidenced by the number of Belgian companies on the cutting edge of aeronautics.”
The 17 members of the ESA astronaut class of 2022 were selected from a pool of over 23,000 applicants. The process, designed to bring together the finest scientific minds that Europe has to offer, took place over a period lasting 18 months.
The selection of Raphaël Liégeois is testament to Belgium’s focus on embracing openness, driven by innovation, partnerships, and diversity, to create solutions that drive progress for all.
Located in the heart of Europe, Belgium is one of the most open economies in the world, counting 11.5 million people with a reputation for innovation, hard work, partnership, and multilingualism. Strategically located between Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Luxembourg, and only a stone’s throw from the UK, it lies at the centre of the richest and most densely populated area in Europe. A member of the European Union, Belgium enjoys full access to the world’s most advanced single market and customs zone which ensures extensive frictionless trade.
Belgium boasts a highly developed transport infrastructure, including the second largest seaport in Europe (Antwerp). Belgium is home to world-leading research and innovation facilities, multinational corporations, and artisanal businesses supported by the investor-centric approach of public services.

Savory & Partners: Digital Nomad Visas Sparking a Migration Boom
DUBAI, UAE, Dec. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The simplicity and lax requirements of digital nomad visas have made them easily accessible, and countries like Portugal and Spain, which have excellent infrastructure, great internet connection, and an outstanding standard of living, draw in more digital nomads by the day, according to experts at Dubai-headquartered citizenship and residency by investment advisors Savory and Partners.
A recent research quoted by the company estimates that there are 16.9 million digital nomads roaming the globe. This is a whopping 162% increase from 2019, just four years earlier.
As soon as Portugal introduced its digital nomad visa in October of 2022, the applications started pouring in. While the government hasn’t announced the number of applications it has received, Portugal’s Labour Minister did announce that the country approved 550 applications within the first six months.
Two months after launching its visa in September of 2021, Greece received 2,918 applications, approving an astonishing 1,693 applicants. The government is yet to release any new statistics, but going off that outstanding start it is safe to assume it is still garnering massive attention.
Germany also boasts impressive numbers, having issued a total of 3,638 visas in just one year since the introduction of its visa in 2018.
According to Residency Malta, the government branch responsible for the digital nomad visa, it has issued 1,041 visas to date, with an average approval rate of 78%.
Croatia, one of the first countries to introduce a pure digital nomad visa in early 2021 as a response to the rise in remote workers, has approved 680 applications, while 672 are still pending approval.
Not just Europe
“It’s not just Europe but even Barbados’ digital nomad visa, dubbed the Welcome Stamp, has been doing outstandingly well, receiving a total of 3,511 applications between 2020 and 2022”, a digital nomad specialist at Savory & Partners reports.
While digital nomads typically use visa-free access or visas to stay in countries for a few months at a time before moving on to the next, digital nomad visas provide a sense of comfort and stability that aligns perfectly with their lifestyle, giving them ample time to enjoy the country they are in before moving on to the next.
The rapid growth in application numbers and the surging demand for digital nomad visas isn’t surprising. They are extremely simple to apply to, have fast processing times ranging from a few days to a couple of months, and they do not require any business establishment or investment.
Portugal’s digital nomad visa, for example, only requires applicants to prove a monthly income of €3,040 per month, while Spain’s visa has a lower threshold of just €2,160 per month.
Savory & Partners is an accredited agent for multiple governments where citizenship by investment is offered. The company has coverage in over 20 jurisdictions, including Europe and was the first firm to obtain all five authorised agent licenses for the governments of the Caribbean Islands. It has processed second passports for over 4,000 citizens with a 100 per cent success rate.
