Founding-Chairman - Assystem
After obtaining his engineering degree at the ENSEM, Dominique LOUIS started working as test engineer for ATEM. A few years later, he created his own company, R’data, and subsequently Alphatem, a joint subsidiary with COGEMA.
ATEM, R’data and Alphatem were merged to form Assystem, a company of 3000 engineers and technicians with a revenue of 250 M€, which Dominique LOUIS steered to a stock exchange listing in 1995.
The withdrawal from nuclear power at the end of the 1990s marked a real transformation of Assystem which diversified into the aeronautical and automobile industry and developed internationally. The aim of Dominique Louis was to turn Assystem into a European engineering company of global dimension, working in infrastructures and R&D, with a presence in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
He is also Vice-President of the think-tank Entreprise et Progrès and chevalier of the Legion of Honor.
