Leading environmental sustainability consulting firm Quantis appoints new CEO and reinforces its team to amplify the group’s mission of accelerating the sustainable transformation of business.
Paris, France — June 30, 2020 — Respected sustainability consulting group Quantis is excited to announce a number of changes to strategic positions that will usher in a new era for Quantis, its people, its partners and its potential for sustainable impact on a global scale. To reinforce Quantis’ mission of accelerating this transformation, Dimitri Caudrelier has been tapped as CEO of Quantis, taking the reins after 11 years with the group. Previously Director of Quantis France, Caudrelier succeeds Emmanuelle Aoustin in this role, effective immediately.
“Quantis has been on an incredible journey, progressing alongside the integration of sustainability into and across businesses. I’m pleased that Dimitri has accepted to take Quantis to the next level. Most importantly, Dimitri is admired for his sincerity and compassion as a leader, one who exemplifies the mission of Quantis. He’s a visionary thinker with a sharp understanding of how businesses can tackle the biggest challenge of our time,” describes Manuele Margni, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Quantis, adding, “On behalf of all Quantis stakeholders, I want to thank Emmanuelle for her leadership, commitment, and accomplishments to the group during a significant phase of transformation in our history.”
“It has been my honor to have led the great team at Quantis, who will always be an inspiration to me. I am incredibly proud of all that we have accomplished together with our clients to embed sustainability strategies and solutions into business practices. I am grateful to have had this experience together and I leave knowing that Quantis is set up to continue impacting even more positive change into its next chapter,” Emmanuelle Aoustin says.
"Together, we must design a new world, one where businesses operate within our planet’s boundaries while elevating our social fabric."
Dimitri Caudrelier, Quantis CEO
Quantis’ new CEO brings a dynamic to the group to match its ambition. Dimitri Caudrelier is as passionate about Quantis and sustainability as he is about sailing from the coast of his native Brittany. He joined Quantis Lausanne in 2009 and shortly thereafter led an expedition to raise awareness for the environment around the globe. He authored the book “100 pionniers pour la planète” (100 Pioneers for the Planet), the fruit of this sailing expedition that took him to 21 countries over 21 months. Over the last decade with Quantis, Dimitri has proven himself as a sustainability analyst, consultant, and then most recently as Director of Quantis Paris for the last 6 years.
“I’m honored to now lead our entire team and our mission at Quantis. We have achieved great transformation over the past years with Emmanuelle and I look forward to bringing a fresh new dynamic and vision to our people and the work we do,” explains Dimitri Caudrelier, the newly appointed CEO of Quantis.
“It’s not the moment to slow down on sustainability. 2020 is not canceled; it can still be the year that opens up the decade of change. Together, we must design a new world, one where businesses operate within our planet’s boundaries while elevating our social fabric,” Caudrelier highlights.
Already in 2020, Quantis has been readying its organization to drive the change that’s necessary to build a sustainable future by hiring great people across Consulting, Talent, Administration & Finance, Communication & Engagement Services, Marketing, Digital Solutions and more. To make even more progress, other key roles have been filled or shifted amongst the teams:
To lead our Paris-based team, Anne Désérable has accepted to take on the role of Director, Quantis France, replacing Caudrelier. Sarah Beaubien transitions from Head of Western US to Director, Quantis US, replacing Bryan Sheehan, who is leaving Quantis to pursue other opportunities in sustainability. Quantis US will also welcome five new colleagues to reinforce its West Coast presence in July. For the Berlin-based team, Ivo Mersiowsky joins the group as Director, Quantis Germany.
“I am very proud of the progress the Quantis US team has made in the past 3 years, including remarkable business and team growth to help our clients take even bolder sustainability commitments and actions. It has been my great honor to have had the chance to lead this wonderful and amazingly talented team,” remarked Bryan Sheehan. “I know that Sarah and the team are well-positioned to take this success and our client collaborators even further in the coming years.”
To reinforce Quantis’ leadership and focus, some newly created roles are filled by senior consultants within the group. Annabelle Stamm as Director, Client Relations and Charlotte Bande as Global Head of Climate Strategy. Gregory Simonnin will lead Quantis’ Corporate Footprint Services.
