Carole Escolan joined UIC on 6 November to replace Nick Craven as the head of the Sustainable Development Unit.
After a Master’s degree in international purchasing, she gained 12-years’ experience in the field of industrial purchasing: first at Bombardier Aerospace in Quebec for two years, then at SNCF in France, in particular as a Manager.
In 2010, further to an inspiring experience in sustainable purchasing, and convinced that professional skills should serve some more global issues, she decided to complete a new Master’s degree in the field of sustainable development and to make a career change to Corporate Social Responsibility.
Since then, she has acquired a strong expertise in that particular field. In particular, she has been in charge of the annual CSR Reporting and non-financial ratings for SNCF group.
This enabled her to develop solid experience in project management and network leadership.
Aged 46 and a mother of two teenagers, Carole Escolan is committed to moving her projects forward in a constructive way. She is now proud to meet the challenge to promote sustainable mobility and environmental issues to UIC members.
