Key organisation in social reintegration through employment for people : www.groupeidees.fr
Founder & Chairman“GROUPE ID’EES was set up and developed on the belief that a company could be the best place for social and professional integration. Embarking on a project working for the interests of the wider community supported by social actors as well as the spirit of accountability and professionalism of an entrepreneur is certainly what has made GROUPE ID’EES what it is today. I believe these are the strengths that Bruno Rousset and Evolem have contributed. This meeting of minds surely built the foundation of our relationship that has grown stronger and deeper. Trust and transparency are now integral to the way we work. Evolem is constantly bringing us important advice, but also reflects the way we want to grow: maintain a dynamic balance between the social and economic dimension that must remain the cornerstone of GROUPE ID’EES.” In 2013, his son Patrick Choux was appointed Managing Director of GROUPE ID’EES.

Specialists in wood energy, thermal solutions and energy saving: www.groupe-novadev.fr
CEO“Taking over a company is no mean feat and presents its fair share of pitfalls. For peace of mind and to be able to tackle problems relating to the markets, integration and the economic climate, you need a solid, united and reliable partner with a strong human dimension and sense of team spirit. That’s why I chose Evolem. Developing a scale-up in the wood energy sector, as I wanted to do with Yann Denance, has been the start of a formidable undertaking that Evolem and ourselves are excited and motivated about.”
