It’s my job
During my studies, I became convinced that global warming and humanity’s confrontation with planetary limits will be the challenges of the 21st century. I like to remind my employees of the opportunity to work on a daily basis to solve these challenges. However, even though we work in a noble sector, competition is intense and markets are evolving rapidly. I therefore put a lot of emphasis on prospecting and working on new business models. It is as rewarding a task as structuring the internal organisation of the three entities I manage. Among them, my time is largely devoted to the emergence of Solarhona, which carries the solar activities on roofs and shades of the group. Created very recently, its entire internal structure (processes, support functions, sales strategy, etc.) is being put in place to compete in this market.
A graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique and the Ecole des Ponts Paris Tech, Julien Marchal has acquired more than twelve years of experience in the energy sector.
He advised French President François Hollande and Emmanuel Macron, before joining CNR as director of new energies.
