Consolidated turnover

Antoine Onfray - Deputy CEO

“I would like to warmly thank Antoine Onfray for his work which has resulted in solid achievements over the past three years. It was a pleasure working with him and I wish him well in the future.

We talk a lot about stimulus and issues related to Covid, but the geopolitical uncertainties in Europe, as well as in the Sino-US relationship, are still here and they are here to stay, so we should not underestimate this. PAREF's organization around its three pillars benefits from a well-diversified business model with a wide regional mix and a new generation of qualified managers who have joined PAREF to continue to support PAREF throughout its career.

Thanks for your best efforts. "
