The Supervisory Board of the ESA met at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Paris ?le-de-France (CCIR) on the 3rd of December 2019 in order to rule on the future executive management of the school. During the meeting, the CCIR nominated M. Maxence Duault as general director of the ESA. The proposition was accepted by the entire members of the counsel.
ESA is specialized in the education and training of managers and executives and provides professional guidance to Lebanese companies. It is co-presided by the governor of the Bank of Lebanon M. Riad Salame and the Ambassador of France, M. Bruno Foucher. The school is managed by the CCIR Paris ?le-de-France as are other major business schools such as HEC Paris, ESCP Business School or ESSEC.
M. Duault has been serving as acting director since July 2019, after being one of the major deputies of Stephane Attali, former general director of the ESA, for the past nine years.
“It is an honor to take over the direction of this prestigious school that has never stopped innovating since its creation in 1995 and has managed to impose itself as a leading entity in management training and in the support of business companies in Lebanon and the region.
I thank all the members of the Surveillance Counsel of the ESA for their trust. I intent to assume these new functions with responsibility and to pursue the expansion of the ESA with respect to its history and culture.
I take this appointment thinking of our students, teachers, various partners as well as the ESA team members. Together, with the strength of the quality and values that are ours, and with respect to the legacy that Stephane Attali has transmitted over the last years, we will lead ESA into its next strategic phase.”
