Before joining SiPearl, he was part of the executive committee of the French advanced electronic manufacturer Eolane, and headed design and R&D services activities for the group and its dedicated product division for the Internet of Things, notably leading the transformation of these activities in connection with an LBO.

Previously, Frédéric Hannoyer spent 14 years in various strategic roles with the STMicroelectronics group, notably on the cybersecurity, core network, multimedia and connectivity markets. In these positions, he led the creation of new product business lines, the transformation of activities or their transition to scale, while defining the right business models, putting in place the teams needed and supporting them by building trust-based relationships with clients and suppliers, as well as strategic partnerships. He has also developed strong relationships with European and international institutions to set up major financial programs.

Frédéric Hannoyer’s appointment will further strengthen the team of proven and international experts chosen by Philippe Notton, SiPearl’s CEO and founder. Further high-level recruitments are underway.

1) 1 billion billion calculations per second.
2) This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under specific grant agreement no.826647.

About SiPearl

Created by Philippe Notton, SiPearl is the Franco-German company that is bringing to life the European Processor Initiative (EPI) project, designing the high-performance, low-power microprocessor for the European exascale1 supercomputer. This new generation of microprocessors will enable Europe to set out its technological sovereignty on the strategic markets for high performance computing, artificial intelligence and connected mobility. SiPearl will develop and market its solutions through close collaboration with its 26 partners from the EPI – scientific community, supercomputing centres and leading names from the IT, electronics and automotive industries – which are its stakeholders and future clients. SiPearl is supported by the European Union(2). It is a member of the PlayFrance.Digital collective for Europe to lead the field for digital technology.
