2CRSI, manufacturer of high-performance servers, announces the appointment of new heads of strategic departments reporting to executive management.
Against the backdrop of strong revenue growth and driven by continuing brisk global demand, the 2CRSI group has strengthened its teams in order to pursue its technological and commercial ambitions. The Group announces the appointment of Benoit Baron as Sales & Marketing Director, Christian Tourneur as Purchasing Director, Hubert Mathis as Operations Director and François Jeanmougin as HPC Pre-Sales Director.

He held a variety of sales positions before being appointed Agency Manager and then Unit Director. Before joining 2CRSI, Benoit was Regional Sales Director at ELIS, an international multi-services provider offering rental and maintenance solutions for textiles, hygiene and wellbeing products. With over 15 years’ experience in managing sales teams and over 20 years’ experience in selling services, Benoit will be in charge of steering the Sales and Marketing department and in particular developing sales of services to our clients.
Christian Tourneur appointed Purchasing Director
With over 25 years’ experience as a Purchasing Director and Site Purchasing Manager at electronics groups like Burkert Fluid Control Systems, RSI Video Technologies and more recently Honeywell, Christian’s role will be to steer 2CRSI’s procurement department, a strategic position in a context in which components supplies can sometimes be very restrictive.
Hubert Mathis appointed Operations Director
Hubert has 30 years’ experience in logistics, including 25 years as logistics operations director and site director in Germany, France and Poland. He began his career at FM Logistic as warehouse director and then site director. He then became operations director for a logistics site at Rhenus Logistics Alsace.

As Operations Director, Hubert is now in charge of coordinating and structuring 2CRSI’s logistics and production services.
François Jeanmougin appointed HPC Pre-Sales Director
Holder of a DEA post-graduate diploma in biology from Strasbourg I University, François has extensive experience of international groups, having recently worked within Hewlett-Packard at EDS, Electronic Data Systems, where he held a variety of positions allowing him to master the environment in which 2CRSI operates. François is very familiar with the challenges relating to the energy efficiency of high-performance computing solutions, deep learning and Big Data, which will enable him to be operational within a very short space of time. Based in Toulouse, François is now in charge of developing 2CRSI’s advanced computing centre of expertise in Toulouse, thereby strengthening the group’s national and international presence. Occitania has now established itself as one of the most active centres in France for high performance computing with Airbus, Météo-France and Total as well as the CALMIP, CERFACS and CINES shared centres.
