Industry Spotlight: François Richard – CEO, Lanéva

This week we are shining an Industry Spotlight on François Richard, CEO of Lanéva.

What is your background and how did you develop the skills to direct a company?

I graduated with a bachelor in Political Science from Sorbonne University in Paris and a MA in International Studies and Diplomacy from SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies), University of London. I also had the chance to roam and travel before embarking on this adventure.
