Philippe, tell us about yourself. How did you become interested in Gilson?

“First of all, this adventure started in an improbable way with the meeting of Paul in Morocco, a “passionate passionate”. Our meetings multiplied afterwards around the takeover project… and I have been managing the company for two years now. Happy to learn every day, I try to bring rigor to a dedicated team that has been in place for 20 years. Rigor does not prevent
