The Team

The management team at Novade has a strong passion for technology, coupled with a pragmatic approach to business issues and uncompromising integrity to ensure long-term customer satisfaction. Oh! And we like to have fun along the way too.


Denis Branthonne

Denis is the quintessential global citizen. He grew up in France, studied at MIT in the US and is deeply connected to Asia.

True stories: he’s designed submarines, rafted on the Zambezi, driven across the Sahara in a clunker, trekked in the Himalayas and para-glided over Rio. He also headed Autodesk’s sales in Asia before starting Novade.

Denis believes in a hands-on approach to building things and when he’s not presenting to bigwigs and wooing investors, he can be found on construction sites getting his hands and his shoes dirty trying to make sure that Novade’s software stays true to the way people work.

Denis is Novade’s CEO and Founder.


Eugene Low

Eugene is a self-made man. After a stint in management of construction sites, he has built one of the South-East Asia’s most successful software reseller and services businesses focused primarily on building and construction software.

When he isn’t hopping around Asia convincing people that Novade is the next best thing since Singaporean chilli crab, he can be found zipping around in his sports cars sampling the finest food and wine the region has to offer.

Bruno Suard

Bruno has a solid track record in developing businesses within large organisations. He also funded 2 startups in mobile P2P SW and in prefab construction. Bruno studied at Ecole Polytechnique in France and at MIT in the US where he met Denis.

Sanjay Kewlani

Sanjay is a technophile with a Masters degree in Architecture and has over 25 years’ experience in the fields of architecture and IT; he is also a professional photographer and has had his photographs featured in a number of design magazines. When he isn’t designing new applications or guiding customers through implementations, he can be found photographing the nearest decaying building.

Ironically, he doesn’t like humble-bragging.

Sanjay is Novade’s Product and Solutions Director


Gautier Bayzelon

Gautier is an adrenaline junkie who loves travelling the world.
Having studied in France and China, he is equally comfortable ordering a pain au chocolat in Paris or chuan’rs (串儿) from a street vendor in Beijing.

When he’s not writing kick-ass code, he can be found wakeboarding or hurtling down a hill on a mountain bike. We regularly check his health insurance coverage.

Gautier is Novade’s Application Development Manager


Luca Vignolini

Luca is from Italy; growing up in the vicinity of Venice has given him a deep appreciation of beauty, culture and food. He loves meeting new people, learning about new cultures and boldly going where no one has gone before; sort of like Star Trek.

He has a wealth of experience in the area of business development and when he’s not introducing new customers to the world of Novade, he can be found dragon boating on the Kallang River. He hopes to meet Sandokan one day.

Luca is Novade’s Business Development Manager


Francis Plégat

Francis plunged into technology early in life. He has worked at some of the premier technology companies of our times from Apple to Adobe to Autodesk. Novade is the latest in the list of stellar technology companies he has worked at.

An avid photographer, videographer and cat-lover, Francis has a keen eye for detail and is our go-to person for graphic and drawing related questions.

When he isn’t traversing the lengths of Europe meeting new customers, he can be found planning a trip to one of Tokyo’s cat cafes.
