Why we join With experience ranging from three to 40 BIC years, four team

members tell their stories and discuss what keeps them motivated. The common denominators? A remarkably

accessible, open-minded leadership. And trust that empowers.

FOR GEOGRAPHIC AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY

The challenges, the culture, the international scope BIC was an obvious fit. As a controller, and later, Finance Director of the plants and R&D in the Stationery category, Virginie traveled the world, coordinating the financial results of 11 plants and taking part in the creation of new sites. From 2008, she ensured the financial control for Europe s distribution subsidiaries, with special coaching for the Eastern European teams. But her wanderlust didn t stop there. My wish for an international position in a developing market came true in March 2015. At Cello Pens, BIC's latest acquisition and N°1 brand in India, I m pursuing the integration of this fine brand. Another exciting challenge!
