Marc Boissonnet began his illustrious career in the TIC industry with Bureau Veritas, where he has held various significant positions, starting with operational roles and progressing to commercial and, most recently, corporate affairs. In his capacity as Executive Vice-President, Marc was instrumental in shaping the company's public affairs and corporate social responsibility initiatives. Within his role in Bureau Veritas, Marc served as Chair of the ESG Working Group and the Strategic Communications Committee of TIC Council.

We are delighted that the wealth of expertise and competence Marc brought to the Association as Chair of the ESG committee will still be leveraged in his new role.”
Last year, Marc received the TIC Council Merit Award for exceptional contribution to the development of the voluntary Guidelines to Align Taxonomy-related Disclosures of TIC Companies, a document that further advances transparency and accountability within our industry. He also sits in the European Commission Expert Group on Sustainability Assurance Standards where he contributes with his competence and knowledge to support the work of this group on behalf of the TIC sector. This recognition, bestowed upon Marc by his peers and colleagues, highlights his exceptional contributions to our industry.
"I am delighted to embark on this next phase of my career. Over the past five years, we have diligently collaborated with the TIC Council community and other key actors to bring the collective wisdom of our sector in support of the ESG legislative framework; I will continue this mission of providing the expertise of our entire sector to support the development and implementation of a robust quality infrastructure eco-system to facilitate a green transition not only in the EU, but globally”, commented Marc Boissonnet.
