He served as CEO of the joint venture for four years.

In 2003, Lamouche returned to IBM, where he was appointed as VP for Worldwide Semiconductor Operations, with New York as his base of operations. Lamouche then accepted an offer to serve as chairman and CEO of Groupe Bull, a global IT company, from December 2004 until mid-2010. Lamouche revamped Groupe Bull's solutions portfolio of computer hardware and software and IT and consultancy services.
