Latexco US recently appointed Olivier Deleu to the role of chief financial officer to help manage the company’s rapid growth and expansion.
As division CFO, Deleu is responsible for serving as liaison between Latexco’s Belgian headquarters and Latexco US in Lavonia, Ga., managing the expansion of the Lavonia and Phoenix, Ariz. facilities, and assisting in development of the US business. He will report to Latexco US CEO Ben Ducatteeuw.
Prior to joining Latexco Group, Deleu served in key finance management and accounting roles for several Belgian equipment and furniture manufacturers, including Haco NV, Haelvoet NV and IPSO-LSG, where he was responsible for monitoring, analyzing, forecasting and reporting financial data.
Deleu also has entrepreneurial and executive experience, starting his own company in 2009 Casa-Chalet, a manufacturer of bespoke wooden structures for the home such as garages, carports and terraces. He ran the company until 2018, when he returned to his career as a financial officer.
“The addition of Olivier to our U.S. team is tremendous because of his knowledge of Latexco’s financial growth and needs in both the U.S. and Belgian markets,” said Ducatteeuw. “Our recent expansions in Lavonia and Phoenix have drastically increased the need for a CFO to track and analyze our now tripled production capacity for both polyurethane foam and latex.”
Deleu joined Latexco Group earlier this year at its Belgium headquarters and recently relocated to Georgia for temporary assignment in the U.S.
