The Board of Directors

The continued growth of Kiloutou and its internationalization since 2013, require a management team organized for such a development. Thus, in 2016, the management team was enriched by two new members, forming a very complementary team, working on the operational perimeters of the network in France and abroad and on the more transversal purchasing responsibilities and equipment, human resources, finance, etc. Kiloutou can avail itself of a well-tightened management team, well aligned with the challenges of the company and able to support the Group’s development..»
