Speaker Nicolas CORDIER


After 12 years of good and loyal service at Leroy Merlin, in marketing, in store and then in central purchasing, Nicolas Corider proposes to his employer to develop activities for people in precarious housing situation in France. At the end of 2013, this project became full-time. This former student of the Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Commerciales in Angers has established partnerships with solidarity-based actors, such as Emmaus Solidarité, in order to target beneficiaries and their needs. Nicolas Cordier initially created a range of training courses (DIY, rental maintenance) before starting to sell low-cost building materials. It has also redistributed almost 200,000 unsold products originally intended for sale by the In-Kind Agency (a system that finds its economic balance through a tax reduction).
