At Societe Generale, our values of team spirit, innovation, responsibility and commitment guide the way we work on a daily basis, both with our clients and our colleagues. I have a fundamental belief in the future of our profession, and enjoy sharing it, particularly with young people, to inspire them when building their future and giving them the desire to join us.
