ENENSYS History and Founders


ENENSYS was founded in 2004 by Regis LE ROUX, Nicolas FANNECHERE and Patrick AUFFRAY. Project was initiated by Regis LE ROUX in 2003 with the simple vision that the Digital TV world and the Telecom world convergence was about to speed up. Nicolas FANNECHERE and Patrick AUFFRAY immediatly joined the project, and the 3 founders started to work on Business Plan, specifications and first product development.

Creation was made easy by co-founder's previous experiences, which included Hardware and Software Development, international project management, marketing, business development and sales, all in the MPEG-2/DVB/ATSC field. The three of them hold a master's degree in electrical engineering from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) in Rennes, France.

The company was established on April 2004 as a self-financed company, remained private for a couple of years, and then went public in February 2006, and coming back to private by end 2009
