Less than a year after being appointed CEO of LuxProvide, David Papiah is stepping down. In a press release, the LuxConnect subsidiary responsible for operating the Meluxina supercomputer names Arnaud Lambert as his replacement, effective 1 October 2023.
Papiah has “stepped down from his position,” reads the LuxProvide press release. Asked why, the company stated that he left for “personal reasons.”
“It is with mixed emotions that I announce my departure from LuxProvide,” says Papiah in the press release. “I am incredibly proud of the work we have accomplished as a team and the positive impact we have made in the industry. I am confident that LuxProvide is well-prepared for the future, and I am excited to watch the company continue to flourish under new leadership.” In the same statement, the board of directors expresses “sincere appreciation” and wishes him “the very best in his future endeavours.”
Lambert comes from a background in digital transformation, technology and business. He has been the director of digital innovation at Luxinnovation since January 2021, and has also been a member of the LuxProvide board since October 2020. Prior to that, he was CEO of CHAMP Cargosystems, IT director at Cargolux and chair of the board of e-Kenz.
Says Lambert in the press release: “In these digital times, supercomputing capabilities and competencies are key drivers to innovation, competitiveness and success. I am confident in the team’s capabilities and the company’s potential to further push the frontiers of innovation in all business sectors, research topics, and public institutions. A unique opportunity to place Luxembourg even more in the forefront of digital innovation in Europe and in the rest of the world.”
