Christophe Fabre Wikipedia
Christophe Fabre (born November 22, 1968) was the CEO of Axway (AXW.PA), spin-off from Sopra Steria, from 2005 until June 22, 2015.
Fabre graduated from the Institut d'Informatique et Mathématiques Appliquées de Grenoble in 1993 with a DESS (equivalent to a master's degree) in Computer Science. Studies focused on software engineering, middleware, OS, and networks.
Christophe Fabre became CEO of Axway in the fall of 2005. Since then, he has overseen the company’s global development which led to Axway’s spinoff from Sopra Group in 2011 on NYSE Euronext (ticker: AXW.PA). During his tenure at the company, Axway acquired Cyclone Commerce, Actis (a German subsidiary of Atos Origin), Tumbleweed Communications Corporation, Vordel, and Systar. While expanding Axway’s operations in the United States, he relocated from France to Phoenix, Arizona, where he established Axway’s corporate headquarters.
Fabre’s career began when he was recruited in July 1995 by Sopra Group, to the business unit which became Axway in 2001. He led a series of R&D projects to develop new generation middleware components for EAI, XML standards, BAM and BPM. In 2003, Fabre assumed the role of CTO, and led the charge to combine all of the company’s existing products into a single platform.
