Anne is a former Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and Board Director of
international companies in manufacturing and energy including Rio Tinto
Alcan, Suez and Solvay. She has led technological capital-intensive
businesses through deep cycles of change and multiple crisis for more than
30 years, and managed global teams in multicultural contexts.
Passionate about education, Anne is now a Professor at HEC Paris, where
she teaches finance and strategy to students in master’s programs. She is
also Academic Director of executive programs, co-designing learning
journeys with corporate clients. Her areas of expertise include sustainable
finance and business performance management. Her teaching style is fun
and engaging, using playful business games and simulations to energize
and empower students.
Convinced that companies are key players in the transition to a low-carbon
economy, that they must cultivate human capital and protect natural capital,
Anne integrates ESG and sustainability into all her training programs.
“I created AquaFin to find and focus on the ‘positives’ in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. I believe we need to re-energize, re-frame and re-think how to engage people within their business environment.
I know from experience how hard it can be for middle managers to anticipate, adapt and act when they are in a ‘bubble’ that is not clearly connected to the bigger picture of the organization. This lack of knowledge or understanding can lead to missed business opportunities, ineffective decision-making and it may even adversely affect the wellbeing of an organization and its people, undermining optimal performance. With AquaFin, I am committed to changing that.”
