In an effort to strengthen its Canadian operations, Thales has grouped its Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax divisions under a single administrative head office in Montreal. It has also appointed as Thales Canada chairman Pierre Jeanniot, former director general and chief executive of the International Air Transportation Association. The strategy is being implemented by Thales in other countries and will give the company better visibility with the government and other customers, says Jean-Pierre Mortreux, president of Thales Canada.
