This interview was given following an event Anne-Sophie attended, the SKEMA Social Ventures Summit, organised by SKEMA Ventures. She was part of a round table on CSR at the heart of corporate strategy, along with Christophe Rupp Dahlem from the Roquette group.
Could you start by telling us a little about yourself and your journey since graduating from SKEMA?
"I’m fortunate to have done a lot of things in my career. I started in marketing in the 1990s, then moved over to FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) companies, where I helped brands to develop in the high-volume retail sector for about thirty years. I’ve worked in marketing, but also in sales in France and Belgium. My journey has been a little unusual, since at the age of 40 I took up my studies again to earn a master’s in Human Resources at HEC. I wanted to work in human resources, which I did for four years before taking over the management of business units at McCain, where I stayed for about 20 years. For the last three years, I’ve been in charge of CSR and corporate communication at Bonduelle. Actually, I would like to take this opportunity to thank SKEMA Business School for giving me the open-mindedness needed to work in such different positions."
