Lenovo has announced the appointment of Aymar de Lencquesaing as president of North America, and Eric Cador as president of EMEA.

The announcement follows a realignment of Lenovo’s business groups.

Lencquesaing, who was Lenovo’s president of EMEA, is being moved over the company’s North American arm.

During his time in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, he led Lenovo’s drive into the mobile space, and laid down the foundations for the company’s expansion plans.

Under his leadership Lenovo EMEA hit a record 19.7 per cent PC share in its financial third quarter, and achieved a 40 per cent year-on-year revenue increase.

Cador, who previously led HP’s PC business in EMEA, will step up as senior VP and president of EMEA from May 1st.

Gianfranco Lanci, president and COO of Lenovo Group, commented: “We are proud to have the most diverse, experienced and talented leadership team in our industry – and this is a core competitive strength for Lenovo. 

“We can attract great talent because our business is strong, our strategy is clear and our opportunity looking forward is substantial.

“In Aymar, we are placing one of our most proven leaders in the strategically crucial North America market to not only build on our strong foundation, but also to deliver the kind of profitable growth and business diversification we have seen in EMEA. 

“In Eric, we have attracted a unique talent to our company – an industry veteran with an incredible track record for delivering growth, deep insights into our industry, and a strong competitive spirit.”
