21 September 2020 – RHEA Group, a privately owned engineering and solutions company in the cybersecurity and space sectors, has announced the strengthening of its executive management team with the arrival of Pascal Rogiest, currently CEO of LuxTrust. Pascal Rogiest will take up his position as Managing Director of RHEA System Luxembourg S.A. in December 2020.

As announced in July, Pascal Rogiest has chosen to return to the space industry after nearly five years as CEO of LuxTrust, a Luxembourg-based company specialized in digital identity and European trust services. Belgian national Pascal sees significant opportunities for RHEA to become a valued partner in the Luxembourg ecosystem within its priority areas of space, cybersecurity, and digital trust. He intends to focus on the creation of services and skills with high added value in cooperation with local organizations.

Within RHEA Group, Pascal will also take on the role of Chief European Institutions Officer, with responsibility for increasing the strategic and collaborative positioning of RHEA towards European institutions by leveraging the value of internal skills and enhanced services.

Pascal has an engineering background and a PhD in aerospace engineering. He started his career at SES, the telecommunications satellite operator, where he held several technical and commercial positions before becoming Vice-President in charge of the group’s strategy and then of its mergers & acquisitions. Managing LuxTrust since 2015, he transformed the company into a customer-focused player and developed its international presence.

It is with great enthusiasm that Pascal takes up this new challenge: “RHEA Group occupies a unique position on the market thanks to its combination of expertise in cybersecurity and space engineering solutions. My experience at SES and LuxTrust is fully in line with this strategy and I am looking forward to sharing it for the benefit of the Group and its teams. RHEA also has a strong customer-centric approach and a clear focus on internal talent – values that are essential to me.”

“Thanks to the network of partners present in Luxembourg, including LuxTrust in cybersecurity, and to RHEA Group’s international network, I am convinced that interesting projects can be realized for the benefit of the Luxembourg, Belgian and European ecosystems.” – Pascal Rogiest

 

André Sincennes, Managing Director of RHEA Group, adds: “Pascal’s profile perfectly meets the needs of the Executive Committee of RHEA Group. His strategic experience will provide us with new elements to put in place to pursue our continued growth and strengthen our reputation in our field of expertise. We are delighted that he will soon be joining the group.”
