The maker of the eBee X fixed wing RPA announces a collaborative leadership structure and emphasis on software partnerships for 2019.

The Parrot Group subsidiary has announced that Jean-Thomas Célette is now managing director, transitioning from his former role as head of product management, business development and customer support.

He and Gilles Labossière, announced as CEO in April, will act as co-leaders, with Labossière in charge of commercial and product strategy, and Célette responsible for the product roadmap, R&D, customer experience and operational functions, according to the company.

“By adopting an intelligent and carefully-defined collaborative approach, supported by our trusted department leaders, I’m confident that Jean-Thomas and I can increase the scope and capacity of senseFly’s leadership function to move the company efficiently forwards,” Labossière said.

senseFly announced that it will emphasise new partnerships, beyond the fellow Parrot Group entities MicaSense, Pix4D and Parrot Drone, seeking out creators of other industry-specific software titles.

“As the commercial UAV market matures, it is essential that we at senseFly chart our own path forwards in order to best meet the needs of our customers and to bring the productivity benefits that fixed-wing drones offer to as many businesses as possible,” Labossière said.

“This, of course, means working closely with the other companies within Parrot Group to create further integrated offerings in the style of today’s Survey 360 and Ag 360 solutions… As we continue strengthening our offer, further industry partnerships will be key to widening such compatibilities and expanding the usability of our solutions.”

senseFly also reported that its average monthly orders have doubled since bringing the eBee X to market in September.
