Tekna Holding AS, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, has announced that Luc Dionne has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of the company. Dionne will succeed Morten Henriksen and assume his responsibilities immediately. A extraordinary general meeting will also be called to appoint Morten Henriksen as chairman of the company’s board.

Dionne has acted as the CEO of Tekna Holding Canada and its global subsidiaries since 2014, with experience from various directorships and executive management positions in advanced materials research, aerospace, microelectronics and defence. Tekna states that this will position him well to lead the company on its growth journey in the verticals of Additive Manufacturing, printed electronics and energy storage.

“This is a natural transition in the management structure of Tekna Holding, as Luc and Morten have been working together in this composition since 2017,” stated Ørjan Svanevik, Tekna chairman. “Luc has been an integral part of Tekna’s leadership team for almost a decade, developing the strategies that Tekna’s employees are executing with excellence to drive growth and value creation. He is a dedicated and innovative leader, and the company will greatly benefit from his ongoing leadership when building on the strong momentum he has created over the last few years.”

Since joining Tekna, Dionne has overseen a threefold growth in the company’s revenues, built a global customer portfolio composed of over two dozen Fortune 500 companies and expanded the company’s operations worldwide. Previously, he served on the Canadian government strategic table for advanced manufacturing and was awarded the Technology Innovation Award from Polytechnic Engineering School of Montreal this year.

“I am honoured to serve as Tekna’s CEO and to be given the opportunity to implement our vision of taking a leadership position in three multi-billion-dollar markets: Additive Manufacturing, printed electronics and energy storage,” added Dionne. “My confidence in the success that lies ahead is rooted in Tekna’s decades-long track-record of delivering excellence to our customers and the dedication and hard work of our people. Our commitment to serving our customers with world-leading micro and nano-sized advanced materials, while seizing profitable growth opportunities and delivering strong returns for our shareholders will remain unwavered.”
