An engineering graduate of the École Centrale de Nantes, Hubert complemented his training with a master's in quality management at ENSAM. He also holds a CAP (French vocational training certificate) in cabinet-making, which proves his personal interest in wood.

He spent 6 years supervising teams of coopers in the barrel workshops and working on cross-cutting projects such as installing production management software. Thanks to this experience, Hubert was convinced that our teams could be even better organized to serve our customers. Consequently, a customer service department – headed by Hubert – was set up, consolidating all 'customer-to-customer' services: sales administration, planning (closely collaborating with production), shipping, after-sales service, and associated IT resources.
