French infant formula company Sill Entreprises group has announced the appointment of Sébastien Floc'h as CEO as the company moves ahead with its new five-year plan that includes a new infant formula plant.

A graduate of the École Supérieure des Sciences Commerciales (ESSCA), Floc'h, 41, worked for more than 10 years in the finance sector at Mazars, then at Hewlett Packard. He then joined Roullier Group (Saint Malo), as head of mergers & acquisitions, then as general manager of the agribusiness and marine technologies division. He held the position of deputy managing director at Louis Dreyfus Armateurs for three years.

Gilles Falc'hun, president of Sill Entreprises, said, "I am pleased to welcome Sébastien Floc'h as CEO. We share a lot of similarities and values. These are essential assets that will be important to support our ambitious five-year plan which is backed by the recent fundraising of €180m ($199m), including the financing of our new infant milk plant in Landivisiau.

“Our common desire will be to increase our international development, reinforce innovation and research, and also to bring even more technical improvements to the companies of the group."

Floc'h said, "Sill is a solid, mature and ambitious group that has already made strong choices in terms of branding, industrial policy and respect for the environment through the structuring of its short and organic sectors."
