How do you see your professional career until now?

The statute change of  a CEO who becomes a magistrate may be atypical for several STRs but the experience acquired in the private economy for more than 25 years is, to be sure very useful to understand our society and to serve it as best. As a consequence, I am very satisfied of my career which I would like to add a better knowledge of the foreign languages.

By an information transmited to the whole vaudois prefects by Ms Pierrette Roulet-Grin, EASTR’s member of honor, whereas she was still a board member.
