Currently, he serves as the Group M&A and Business Development Director at Korian. Korian's M&A department has several responsibilities within the group, but is mainly focused on international development. But when it comes to M&A, “Mergers and acquisitions are a people business, before being a financial question. This is why relations with local actors through our networks in our living areas are essential. To select them, it is important to remember that an M&A strategy stems from a corporate vision. This is why Korian has implemented strategic and financial criteria that enable us to ensure value creation, and which remain central to this entire process,” Jean-Michel shares.
