“The GEOVIA brand offers a holistic response to the exponential challenges that the world is facing in natural resources and urbanization, and Raoul’s talent and experience will drive GEOVIA as we accompany the natural resources industry in its progressive digital transformation,” said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO, Dassault Systèmes.

Raoul Jacquand, 43 years old, brings 20 years of experience in the geoscience and technology industries to Dassault Systèmes. Prior to joining the company, he was Executive Vice President, Geomarkets Sales & Marketing at CGG, a fully integrated geoscience company providing geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities for clients in the global oil and gas sectors. Before this, he worked for more than a decade in international telecommunications at Nortel, holding senior-level engineering and marketing positions.

Dassault Systèmes created the GEOVIA brand in 2012 to improve predictability, efficiency, safety and sustainability within the natural resources industry. Today, Dassault Systèmes’ GEOVIA applications are used to model and simulate the planet—from the vast expanse of the geosphere to the smallest details of urban settlements—thanks to expertise in territorial development and underground works. As part of this “virtual planet,” GEOVIA applications help mining customers develop and run more efficient mines, and cities worldwide visualize the effects of future urbanization on their citizens, infrastructure and resources.
