Breakfast Meeting and Board Elections @Hotel MERCURE

On the 29th of January 2015, the French chamber marked a new step in its development with the election of a new board.

A breakfast meeting was organised at the Mercure Riga Centre Hotel where our members and associated friends joined us to meet with Mr. Ģirts Greiškalns – the executive director of the Foreign Investors Council in Latvia (FICIL).

The same morning, Wisher Enterprise, the group which owns the Mercure hotel introduced us to their wide range of real estate activities, in a very comprehensive presentation showing their portfolio from Ukraine to Latvia through Poland and Georgia. (Please find the presentation here.)

After our guests had a chance to network and meet with our speakers, the CCIFL proceeded to the election of its 2015 board.

Amongst the candidates, the following board was elected:

Thibault Normand – President – from the company Eastern Intelligence
Frederic Dehondt – Vice-President – from the company Dodo Hotel
William le Clere – from the company Vichy Group
Martynas Kersys – from the company GEFCO Baltics
Denis Krivchenkov – from the company Thales Baltics

This new board has already started planning activities for the first semester of 2015 and is preparing for the transition to a larger member base starting from September this year.

The meeting was also an opportunity to meet with some of our newest members which include:

  • Avento
  • Eastern Intelligence
  • Spilbridge Attorneys
  • Dodo Hotel
  • Vichy Group

The chamber looks towards the future and is planning speaker conferences and presentations from professionals recognised as references in their fields such as IT and banking security, Leadership, Energy, etc.

We hope to see many of you at our future events.
