ALICE has renewed its Executive Group this week in London. ALICE members have strongly supported the candidacies presented. Francois Regis Le Tourneau, Corporate Supply Chain Standards and Prospective Director at L’ORÉAL has been elected the new chairman of ALICE for the next mandate until July 2021.

Francois Regis said: “I consider the missions of ALICE as a major stake to promote in Europe. I have the ambition to accelerate change and innovation in collaboration with Industry, Research, European Institutions and National Organisations.

My ambition is to enlarge the base of industries, public actors and researchers, collaborating into ALICE in order to strenghten our influence range”.

Francois Regis, will be supported by two vice-chairs and five thematic chairs.

After 3 years of mandate of Sergio Barbarino (P&G) and having been P&G in the chair since ALICE creation in 2013, Sergio Barbarino will continue to develope a key role in the executive group as Vice-Chair, he said:

“One of the things I am most proud in my life is to have started a lot initiatives that are still standing despite I have not being active in them for years.

I have been in Alice since the very beginning, P&G and I have always had a firm intention to have a rotating leadership. Therefore, I am very proud of the fact that we have a great new chairman, both the person and the company he represents. In the past months I learned a lot from L’OREAL position on Urban Logistics.  Smarticities is one of the 5 prioriry areas for Horizon Europe, so this change will be very beneficial .

P&G and myself also realize that continuity matters, especially in complex technical areas. It has been a career choice within P&G of becoming a subject matter expert, rather than a manager, and I am very proud of my management support for this change of role within ALICE that allows both rotation and continuity”
