René Char

Professional background

After starting his career with Pernod-Ricard, he joined the Danone group for a long career spanning 31 years, 18 of which were spent abroad, in both developed and emerging countries. He held a variety of positions in marketing, sales, R&D and, since 2000, as General Manager of subsidiaries and then Vice-President of the Africa/Middle East/India zone.

Passionate about human development, Marc became a true business partner for HR and contributed to the elaboration of leadership development programs for the Group’s top executives. As an in-house coach, he accompanied numerous General Managers as they onboarded their new appointments, as well as women directors through their career development challenges. Last but not least, he is deeply committed to common good issues and social economy and headed the Social Business innovation unit reporting directly to Emmanuel Faber.

Coaching expertise

In 2005, at the request of one of his former directors who had been appointed Managing Director, Marc began his coaching experience and discovered the power of the coaching posture. He has been developing it ever since, even during his role as an operational manager. In 2018, he decided to make it his exclusive profession and rounded off his expertise by returning to the HEC business school. His individual and team coaching sessions often focus on developing emotional and relational intelligence as well as building trust. As a coach, he taps into the wealth of personal experiences, situations and encounters that have punctuated his career as a manager. His interest in the common good has led him to work with senior civil servants through Turningpoint programs. ​
