What is your background ?
Before joining Calon, I was a trained boilermaker: I always liked innovating, inventing, and I worked several years at the prototype department of a dealership in the Médoc.
What is your biggest challenge ?
You need a great availability and a lot of prevention, planning to always have functioning equipment and insure their longevity. For me, there is never an emergency at Calon Ségur: emergencies are at the hospital. I have been a volunteer firefighter in the Médoc for almost fifteen years. It is an important part of my life, at the same range of my job and family. It brings us another vision of things, facing misery or distress. And it is a wealth I am proud of.
What is « your » Calon ?
An avant-garde property! When I arrived I was alone in a little workshop where tractors could barely fit. We then had four tractors that worked for the estate; today we have about twenty of them. The workshop I have today at my disposal, in equipment, in technology, in staff, in time, is a real luxury. The equipment is computerized, much more precise, light, less polluting… Those are exceptional work conditions.
