An executive of varied biography and knowledge, he brings in more than 20 years of experience in management, M&A, and international relations. Letant will be responsible for the company’s growing global operations, as well as its key projects and product delivery, from feasibility assessment to the commercial launch.
Letant has a great mix of big picture strategic thinking and a hands-on leadership style. He has a reputation for setting a high bar, focusing on impact, and building trust within the organization. We strongly believe we will benefit from his skill set, his experience in TMT, as well as from his insight into the Asian markets, which are instrumental to our next growth stage, Centili Group CEO Zoran Vasiljev said.
Born in France and educated in the USA, Letant lived and worked in China for ten years. To that, he added 12 years of work experience in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand. He joined Axiata Group in 2011 as Head of Group Strategy and Analysis. From there, he moved to leadership positions at their Kuala Lumpur-based digital venture Apigate.

He has experience in diplomacy and journalism and has served on the boards of several tech start-ups.
