On March 28, the Wendel International Center for Family Enterprises held a round-table discussion in Wendel’s Paris premises on the topic of strategic alliances between family-owned companies. During the event, corporate executives gave concrete examples of strategic alliances. For example, Yves Gonnord, Chairman of Fleury Michon’s family holding company, presented the joint venture between his company and Beretta.
Olivier Mellerio, CEO of Interfinexa, Bertrand Louvet, general partner at Portulane / AEL Consultants, Yves Doz, Director of INSEAD’s strategic alliances program, and Vincent Barbier and Sabine Matheson, Chairmen of the Lefebvre-Sarrut family holding companies, also took part in the discussion.
The Wendel International Center for Family Enterprise holds conferences, round-table discussions and other events throughout the year on topics related to family-owned enterprises in an effort to promote and support this business model.
