14/10/16

Mr. Frédéric Lemoine, chairman of the board of Bureau Veritas (BV) visited BV’s Shanghai head office on October 10th, 2016, shared his vision on BV’s development in China during the company’s town hall meeting.


Mr. Jérome Malassigne, Executive Vice President of BV North Asia delivered a short opening speech and presented Mr. Lemoine with Longjing green tea as a welcome gift on behalf of BV China.


Mr. Lemoine then delivered his key note speech. As the Chairman of the board of BV as well as a number of investment companies and enterprises, Mr. Lemoine is experienced in economy, politics, and cross-cultural field. He told anecdotes reflecting the friendship between France and China, pointed out that BV’s development in China had been rapid thanks to China's impressive economic advancement in the past 20 years and shared his vision on the bright future of the company. 




He also showed his appreciation to the outstanding performance of BV China’s employees, and encouraged everyone to keep looking for new opportunities for the company in order to achieve the company’s objectives. He said, “BV China’s operation is really impressive. You in this room can completely transform BV just by developing BV in China. I think China is in the long future the No. 1 country in BV. China is the first country already in headcount and soon in revenue and certainly in the profit as well, and even a good level of margin is achieved by our operation in China. You are leading the company towards its strategic goals for 2020.”


Mr. Lemoine had a profound understanding of the changes in Chinese economic environment, and expressed his insightful view on the dual- and multi-value culture of urban and rural China through the novel “Brothers” written by Chinese writer Yu Hua.


When talking about the third party TIC market in China, Mr. Lemoine said, with China’s growth in economy, the demand for trust, quality and sustainability was rising. Besides, BV would also benefit from the global trend of outsourcing. BV was serving innumerous clients around the globe including top performers in many industries. To focus on their core capability, companies tended to hire independent third parties for testing, inspection and certification services. BV China’s growth would hugely benefit from this trend in the future.     


Finally, Mr. Lemoine reiterated his confidence in BV China. He noted that BV not only had dedicated long timers but was also attracting new talents, and BV would definitely see great development under the leadership of BV’s CEO Mr. Didier Michaud-Daniel and the EVP of BV North Asia Mr. Jérome Malassigne. He said, “We are close to be a 200-year old company. We have a strong growth in Europe, but I really believe that a large part of our future is here in this country with you.”
