Partners of the Chair


The Leadership and Managerial Competencies Chair began due to a partnership with REDCATS and AUCHAN in 2005. Since 2010, LA POSTE and SAGE have joined them as partners. In 2013, LEROY MERLIN decided to support our long-term projects, joined by CREDIT MUTUEL NORD EUROPE and HAPPYCHIC in 2015: a new team of sponsors for a new stage of our development.

It is thanks to the financial support of these companies and the investment of their managers that the LCM Chair team has the necessary means to carry out its projects.
