ALAIN COJEAN


Founder of COJEAN


« Pléiade Investissement is a long-term partner, and has always been an associate I can count on »

“Pléiade Investissement put their trust in me from inception, almost 20 years ago. Back then, I only had a few presentation panels for my project, but also, and above all, faith. Pléiade Investissement has accompanied me all these years, leaving me total control over the heart of my profession – that is, internal organization and operationality – while providing me with real support, particularly for the financial side of things.

 

Pléiade Investissement is a long-term partner, and has always been an associate I can count on – and I’ve taken full advantage of that. Over time, our professional relationship has also become a friendship. Today, my company is in a good place, with a new CEO who has taken over. I know that the company will go far, and I am delighted for it.

 

We have enjoyed a wonderful adventure together, and I hope it will continue like this for a long time to come!”

 

TEDDY MEGARBANE


Former CEO of Ciblex & shareholder of Pléiade Investissement


« Together, we have built up a friendly, motivating relationship »

“My experience as an entrepreneur-investor alongside Pléiade has been extremely fulfilling and stimulating.

 

I have been accompanied by a shareholder whose actions and interventions are guided by an acute ethical viewpoint and strong values.

 

Together, we have built up a friendly, motivating relationship.

 

Our interactions and exchanges made it possible to guarantee high growth in our common investment, and to create final value. Since the transfer, our relationship has continued, and even become stronger, though in another form as I have taken a stake in Pléiade’s capital.”

 

JEAN-CHARLES DECONNINCK


President of the Generix Group Executive Board


« With Pléiade, we are accompanied by men and women who are truly passionate about business »

“We have been developing our activity with the support of Pléiade Investissement for 13 years now.

 

Together, we have embarked on an entrepreneurial adventure, starting as a small software editor working in a perimeter that was limited to Lille-Roubaix-Tourcoing, and which has now grown into a company that is deployed in 50 countries, with 8 subsidiaries, a totally transformed business model and turnover multiplied by 7.

 

This project – which is far from over! – has been made possible because we were accompanied by men and women from Pléiade who are truly passionate about business. They know how to accompany entrepreneurs at exactly the right time, as well as in the more delicate moments; they know what it means to keep their word, and they always respect the best interests of the company.

 

These values have made it possible to calmly build and develop a solid group, bringing innovation to clients, collaborators and shareholders.”

 

Thierry MEYNLÉ


CEO of Divalto


« Without Pléiade Investissement, there’s no doubt we would never have had such an incredible success ! »

“Since the takeover of Divalto in 2006, Pléiade Investissement’ support has been one of the keys to our development: Pléiade Investissement has accompanied us in the long term, and this aspect is absolutely essential in our profession where, given the considerable investments in R&D, the time between the decision to design a new product and its actual realization is often counted in years.

 

Pléiade Investissement is made up of people from all walks of life, but they are all top flight, and have always agreed to accompany us in a kind manner, particularly for delicate operations such as external expansion or strategic operations.

 

Pléiade Investissement has always known how to accompany and encourage us (or hold us back when necessary), at a time when it was also necessary to show kindness when helping us seize good opportunities or run away from bad ones. Pléiade Investissement helps us to bring structure to our company, step by step. Without Pléiade Investissement, there’s no doubt we would never have had such incredible success!”
