THE VCOMV CAC 40 SURVEY:

THE SURVEY THAT SETS THE BENCHMARK FOR THE MARKET

A NEW “SCHOOL” OF LEADERS

There was the SAINT-GOBAIN School, then the PECHINEY School: the French Elite.

Now it’s time for the SCHLUMBERGER School: the globalized French Elite.

1. The SAINT-GOBAIN School:

Intelligence, and plenty of it…
A school shaped by the industrial world, characterized by brilliant leaders like Jean-Louis Beffa.
A 360 ° industrial vision… and an incredible ability to think – and talk – far beyond the scope of their company (Pierre-André de Chalendar, Philippe Crouzet, etc.).

2. The PECHINEY School:

Genuine engineers, who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.
Engineers who are passionate about their products.
Highly operational engineers (Benoît POTIER, Carlos TAVARES, etc.)

3. The SCHLUMBERGER School: THE GLOBAL ENGINEER.

They have brought engineers back into business… but with an extra asset: the global engineer as part of a full globalization strategy.

Their typical profile :
• No X-Mines nor ENA graduates: but those who have attended an engineering or a business school (Thierry Pilenko: Nancy Geology School; Jean-Pascal Tricoire: Angers École Supérieure d’Électronique de l’Ouest, etc.).
• No appointment out of Ministerial Cabinet. So no possible parachuting from a government post.
• No entry through networking. They’re not part of the Establishment or the Parisian microcosm.
• No circle of influential friends. Definitely no social butterflies.
• A career path usually involving experience abroad.
• “Global leaders” (multicultural and multilingual).
• One obsession: client first!
• Two-fold thinking: the Company perspective and the sectorial overview.
