Values and governance

The values that underpin ESL & Network’s identity have been the same since it was founded almost 30 years ago. They provide a foundation in which the Group’s employees, partners, customers and, more generally, all of its stakeholders can be fully recognized: confidentiality, quality, creativity, custom made and agile. The ESL & Network group acts in strict compliance with national and international regulations and ensures that all its stakeholders are informed and respect its business ethics policy. This applies to all its employees and partners who must know all the rules applying to their field of professional responsibilities and in particular, the laws and regulations applicable to their activity.

The Executive Board

The Executive Board, chaired by Alexandre Medvedowsky, exercises its functions collegially.
