An entrepreneur at heart
Polette is described as an entrepreneur at heart, and has a strong track record in IT company growth.
In 2001, he founded his first company, a fast-growth pioneer cyber security consulting firm that he sold to the French leader LEXSI in 2007. He was appointed CEO two years later, and led the transformation of LEXSI into a strong and sustainable mid-sized business, doubling the company’s sales and income.

The acquisition of LEXSI by Orange Cyberdefense in 2016 gave him first-hand experience in large corporation management and external growth.
Most recently, he went back to his entrepreneurship roots to help start-up companies early 2018, before joining Talentia Software in September.
“I am delighted to welcome Pierre Polette as our new CEO today. He has all my trust to further grow our company; he has the experience and the leadership to strengthen Talentia’s position on our markets! I am certain that he will lead us through our next phase of growth and open new perspectives both in France and internationally,” said Viviane Chaine-Ribeiro, Presidente of Talentia Software.
