This experience prompted him to create three companies: first trading pharmaceutical assets and excipients, then in Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs, and a third in Consulting and Support.

Various operational positions in the industrial sector allowed him to acquire and develop his skills, during the Merger and Acquisition and subsequent restructuring process within a large agricultural grains group, during the management of a joint venture at international level, and during the various training sessions with Pharmacy graduates.

At the same time, Marc-Henri volunteers in various charitable associations supporting those with disability.

He has supported the association over the long term, including through the merger with the John Bost Foundation in 2013, and is currently a member of the Finance Committee.

He has always championed and supported change by placing human values at the heart of his service.
