Thierry Hontabat takes over from Cécile Rambaud

Having been at the head of Previnter since the end of 1997, Cécile Rambaud is now taking retirement.  The Association’s Board of Directors continues to have every confidence in the Crédit Agricole S.A. group and its representative, Thierry Hontabat, International Mobility Manager at the Crédit Agricole S.A. group, to act as Chairman.

It is a great responsibility for me, as well as a great honor, to take over from Cécile Rambaud as Chairman of Previnter. Through Cecile’s efforts, the Association has seen an annual growth in membership of 5% over the last 10 years!” said Thierry Hontabat.  A qualified engineer who managed major IT transformation projects at Elf Aquitaine and PSA Peugeot Citroën, Thierry took his career into the field of international Human Resources – with a particular focus on International Mobility at PSA and now at Crédit Agricole S.A.

This continuous, harmonious development is the result of Cécile’s determination to capitalize on one of Previnter’s key values: the promotion of exchanges within the Association so that the member customer is always central to everything we do!” explains Thierry who wants to continue on this path for the benefit of the association and its members in these times of economic turbulence.

In an increasingly digital world, faced with an ever-growing demand for information and ease of communications, Thierry is a proponent of innovation and in particular the use of new technologies which “must enable the Association to increase its capacity to share and distribute information to all of its members. New initiatives to that effect will be rolled out by the end of this year, including a redesign of the Previnter website and its digital ecosystem!

From today, the desire of the Association to move forward will be demonstrated by the launch of a new support mechanism specially designed for mothers-to-be who are covered by Previnter; it is described in detail in this edition of Planet'Expat.  You can also discover the new version of the mobile application which will soon be available online and presented here.

Our thanks go to Cécile Rambaud for her significant contribution to the growth of Previnter and our congratulations to Thierry Hontabat on his appointment as head of the Association!
