Raphael Gorgé – Chairman and CEO of Groupe Gorgé – Chairman of Prodways

Raphaël Gorgé has been Chairman and CEO of Groupe Gorgé since 2011. A chemical engineer, Raphael Gorgé entered the family-owned Groupe Gorgé in 2004 after a 10-year career in finance and technology. His first strategic decision was to disengage the group from the automotive sector (70% of sales in 2004) and to move into the high-value-added growth sectors of technology (aerospace, nuclear and defense), while greatly expanding the Group’s international footprint (more than 50% of consolidated sales in 2013).
His meeting with André-Luc Allanic in 2013 was soon followed by an agreement to develop Prodways, the company of which he is currently Chairman.
