Therapixel Appoints Matthieu Leclerc-Chalvet as CEO

July 3, 2019 — Artificial intelligence (AI) breast cancer screening specialist Therapixel announced the appointment of Matthieu Leclerc-Chalvet as chief executive officer on June 14, 2019. This follows a 5 million euros series A fundraising, and the appointment of Sacha Loiseau as chairman of the board. Leclerc-Chalvet is also joining the board of directors.

Leclerc-Chalvet brings 30 years of experience in the development and commercialization of medical devices. After 20 years abroad, working for multinational organizations as well as start-ups, he chose to return to France to share his experience with Therapixel. Until now, Leclerc-Chalvet was managing director of Mirada Medical, a British company specialized in medical imaging software, where he orchestrated a pivot towards AI, leading to the launch of the first AI software in radiotherapy.

Leclerc-Chalvet declared, “I am thrilled to join a team of such technical and scientific excellence, and to bring my strategic and operational expertise in adoption of medical technology innovation globally.” 

This appointment allows Therapixel co-founder and interim CEO Pierre Fillard to focus on his role of chief scientific officer (CSO). He will work alongside Leclerc-Chalvet on completing the AI breast cancer screening product and going through the regulatory approvals leading to the commercial launch.
