Vallourec, a provider of tubular solutions with six global research centers, has appointed Barthélémy Longueville to the position of chief digital officer (CDO). As the group puts its Transformation Plan into action, the CDO's task will be to steer Vallourec's digital strategy, alongside Philippe Crouzet, chairman of the management board. 

Longueville joined Vallourec in 2006. Based in Shanghai from 2009, he was in charge of industrial and commercial operations for Vallourec's power generation activity in China. He is a graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure higher education institute in Cachan and holds a doctorate from Paris's Ecole Centrale engineering school.

The sectors in which Vallourec operates are gradually going digital and developing technology solutions that deliver real value is a key component of the group's digital strategy.

"Vallourec has already begun its digital transformation,” said Longueville. “We now have modern production facilities and a high degree of automation. Now that the review stage has been completed and has confirmed this momentum, our goal is to speed up the development and commercialization of innovations that have already been identified and show the most promise."
