Governance of the SII Group

The Founder

The SII Group was created in France in 1979. Its founder Bernard Huvé, an engineer by training, started this adventure at the age of 30.

​​​Founder & Chairman of the Supervisory Board

"I decided to set up a company whose aim was, in 1979, to provide consultancy services to mainly industrial companies. I called it SII which stands for 'Société pour l'Informatique Industrielle'. 

My initial ambition was simply to accompany my clients through a reactive company at the cutting edge of the techniques at the time.

Today this still is the case, but on a much larger scale: SII is an agile Group which offers skills both in Digital Services and Engineering, to drive the transformation of many sectors of the economy."

Until 2007, SII was organized as a board of directors. Bernard Huvé was both Chairman as Chief Executive Officer. At the end of 2007, the company's governance structure changed to a limited company with a Management Board and a Supervisory Board. This form of the company makes it possible to separate the management function from that of control, ensuring this way a balance of powers.

The Supervisory Board

The Supervisory Board's mission is to ensure the proper functioning of the company and to report to the shareholders. It is chaired by Bernard Huvé, accompanied by three other members:

Jean-Yves Le Metayer
Vice-President of the Supervisory Board

Alexia Slape
Member of the Supervisory Board

Jean-Yves Fradin
Member of the Supervisory Board

 

The Management's Board

The Group's Management Board (France and internationally) is responsible for strategy and the relationship with the Supervisory Board. It has been chaired since 2007 by Eric Matteucci, who has been accompanied since 2019 by François Goalabré, Antoine Leclercq, and Charles Mauclair.
