As 2022 comes to an end, EE Times is highlighting memorable stories from each of its editors over the past year. Today’s spotlight is on Anne-Françoise Pelé, editor-in-chief for EE Times Europe and correspondent at EE Times.
Anne-Françoise Pelé joined CMP as editor-in-chief of the newly-launched EETimes.fr in 2003 and participated in the formation of EE Times Europe in 2006. She covered the European and global electronics industry for longer than 10 years and successively led EE Times’ EDA, Automotive, Medical, Smart Energy, and Military-Aerospace DesignLines.
In 2015, she joined Google France as the editorial lead for Think with Google, a digital marketing resource offering insights, data and analysis.
After four and a half years at Google, Anne-Françoise returned to journalism. Based in France, she writes news and analysis on the European electronics industry and has developed an interest in MEMS, imaging and sensor devices—and their ever-growing fields of application (i.e., medical, transportation, industrial, agriculture/environment, and IoT).
