If we had to sum up in a few words Philippe Guerret's atypical career until the creation of M2i Life Sciences in 2012, we could talk about experimentation and rapid responsibilities: creation of PepsiCo in France, management of audiovisual rights at UGC at the time of the takeover by Canal+ (with "absolutely astonishing tax cases for a young graduate", as he says), Vinci's IPO and the launch of the group's airport concessions even before he was 30 years old. Already in the big league, Philippe Guerret surfs between Miami and Switzerland, excels in the repositioning of companies in difficulty and specialises in duty free. With a head start, he imagines what could become his next playground, until he falls in love at first sight with the industry.
