Passionate about Industry, Elodie supported the business development of industry leaders for 15 years, mainly in Africa and Middle East.
She started her career in 2005 with Airbus Group, in charge of industrial cooperation projects for the UAE, Turkey and Romania. In 2008 she moved to the agrochemical leader Roullier Group as Business Development Director.
