Stefaan Goossens and Bruno Massa bring hands-on market experience to the management team

 

Leuven, BelgiumJanuary 7, 2009 – LMS, the engineering innovation company, is pleased to announce the appointment of two new vice presidents: Mr. Stefaan Goossens, Vice President Simulation and Mr. Bruno Massa, Vice President Strategic Planning and Communication. In light of the departure of Filip Pintelon, Bruno Massa has also agreed to take on the role of Ad Interim Vice President of the LMS Test division.

“Both Stefaan Goossens and Bruno Massa are dedicated LMS people with years of company and market experience. Both have extremely impressive track records in their respective fields and their extensive market know-how and leadership will certainly contribute to the future success of LMS,” said Dr. Urbain Vandeurzen, chairman and CEO of LMS. 

Stefaan Goossens joined LMS after obtaining his mechanical engineering degree from the K. U. Leuven (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven). Having worked in customer support, product management and engineering services where he was on the management team, Stefaan Goossens brings an extensive range of hands-on LMS experience to his role as Vice President Simulation.

During his 10 years in LMS Engineering Services, he ran cutting-edge vehicle development projects for Jaguar and Mitsubishi amongst others. In 2006, he was named manager of the CAE and Simulation division and today as Vice President, he puts his company and customer background and hands-on experience to work every day focusing on developing the type of 1D and 3D simulation tools that the market requires.

 

With 20 years in the high-tech sales and marketing sector – ten of which at LMS – Bruno Massa has a thorough understanding of both the test and simulation industries. With this experience, he is ideally positioned to take on the responsibility for strategic planning and corporate initiatives such as partnerships and acquisitions to build the future growth path for the company. In addition to his strategic planning reasonability, he will develop the global LMS brand to strengthen the leadership position of LMS in its core markets and to build awareness in new application areas.

Bruno Massa will combine his new position with the role of Ad Interim Vice President of the LMS Test Division. Together, Bruno Massa and his team of experts will continue to develop innovative test-based engineering solutions that answer the challenges of LMS’ broad customer base and extend LMS’ leading N&V position in the automotive and aerospace industries into new markets and applications.

Prior to his role as Vice President Strategic Planning and Corporate Communications, Bruno Massa was responsible for the international marketing and communication department for the LMS group. Bruno Massa holds an engineering degree from the University of Hasselt, Belgium and an MBA in Marketing from the Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School.

“Both Stefaan and Bruno are ideally positioned to take up their respective roles. LMS has a clear strategy for growth and market leadership by building on our engineering expertise and providing solutions that deliver real added value to our customers’ product development processes.

Stefaan’s extensive automotive and aerospace go-to-market experience and Bruno’s thorough marketing know-how will certainly contribute to addressing the challenges of our customers around the world,” concluded Willy Bakkers, Chief Business Operations.
