Pierre Seger, the Director and Founder of ACSAN started working in economic development and inward investment in the 1990s.
From his contribution to the regeneration of the old coal mining areas in the east of France, via his lead generation work in Spain, through to his work for Usinor in the steel areas of Florange and Longwy, Pierre always worked in collaboration with the State and local authorities. He was also actively involved with some of the key investment projects of the time, such as General Electric and Daewoo.
In 1994 Pierre was sent to Nîmes in the South of France to work on the regeneration of the Perrier site which had just been sold to Nestlé. Whilst happy that the mission was successfully completed, representing 900 jobs for the region, Pierre also became aware of a certain gap in the market, which would ultimately become the raison d’être of the soon to-be-formed ACSAN.
