Irène Gosset, Chairman and shareholder of the Groupe Pochet has warmly thanked Tristan Farabet “for his decisive action in the service of the Group over the past seven years and for the significant progress made. This positive momentum now enables us to look to the future with confidence and to open a new page in the Group’s history.”
