Here is the fifth episode of our series “France Korea Next Generation” by the French-Korean Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) in partnership with the French Embassy in Korea! Today, meet with Clément, Pierre and Normann, who share about their journey and passions in South Korea. Subtitles are available in English and in Korean!


Clément, 33 years old, arrived in Korea in 2012 as a young logistics engineer in Bollore Logistics. The challenge was especially big as his first mission was to integrate a warehousing unit outside Seoul, and being the only French national permanently located there. What was supposed to be a 2-3 years adventure, quickly moved to 10 years working experience. Jumping to 2021, and after a 2 years opportunity in Shanghai, Clement now occupies the position of Regional Supply Chain Development manager in Royal Canin, Mars group, and is still based in Seoul.


Pierre ALERET, 25 years old, is a marketing specialist for Bostik, subsidiary of the Arkema group in the chemical sector, coming to Korea as part of his Volunteer International Internship (V.I.E). For him, Korea is the first step towards the internationalisation of his professional career. With a dynamic and innovative market and industry leaders, particularly in electronics, IoT, electric and autonomous vehicle technologies, South Korea is an attractive market for this young professional.


Normann, 33 years old, lived in Korea for 10 years after discovering the country and its language during a sabbatical year following his business studies in France. He currently works for Sanofi Pasteur as a finance business partner after joining the French pharmaceutical group as VIE in 2014. The vaccine sector in Korea is very complete compared to other countries with up to five sales channels (direct, wholesalers, partners, public and military health centers). This has enabled it to enrich its sales knowledge over a wide scope.
