HCP’s management has stressed that notwithstanding this change of ownership for SIMP, it is business as usual with no disruption of service due to this change. SIMP would continue to operate autonomously within the HCP family with its President, Mr Alain Blondel, remaining as President and reporting directly to Mr Eddy Wu, HCP’s Group President and Chief Executive Officer, and with Mr Éric de Bardonnèche remaining as Sales and Development Manager.
