Françoise TOLLET

Chief Executive Officer

After receiving a degree in agronomy from AgroParisTech and a Masters in Business Administration from HEC in Paris, she spent 12 years in the food industry (cotton, palm oil, and tobacco), first as a consultant, and then, via her strong understanding of how to lead complex investment projects in emerging countries, as the director of development with the Bolloré group. She has run Business Digest since 1998, a company that she co-founded in 1992. And she took the Internet plunge by 1996… even before coming on board as part of the BD team.

The Key People Club Network (Philippe Le Roux)

« People have never been as accessible to each other as in the current era of information, communication, and no boundaries. Yet the members of today’s societies are constantly searching for meaning, and companies must prove capable of forming positive relationships with their members, partners, and environments. More than the products a company sells, its values and ability to connect are what counts. That is why, since 1994, Key People has been devoting its energy and know-how to helping people make connections. »
