Joël Séché

Chairman-Founder of Séché Environnement

Born to an entrepreneurial family in the Mayenne region of France, Joël Séché founded his first company when he was just twenty. After making a start in the transport business, he took over the family public works business with around ten employees and in the mid-1980s quickly moved it to a sector with great potential: waste processing and recovery. Always ahead of his time, he developed his company with an eye to protecting the environment and always considering the human factor: it was the first in the world in the industry to obtain ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management. For over three decades, he has made Séché Environnement one of the key players among the most innovative environment-focused companies. To obtain the financial resources for growth, he floated his company on the Paris stock exchange in 1997 and led the development of the Group, first in France then internationally from the late 2010s.

Joël Séché is the father of Guillaume Séché, who manages the medical waste processing activity of the Group, and of Maxime Séché, who he made Managing Director of the Group on 10 December 2019. Joël Séché is today Chairman of Séché Environnement.

He is a Knight of the French Legion of Honour and Officer of the National Order of Merit.
