Initiatives-Coeur’s team manager
I have been Initiatives-Coeur’s team manager since 2014. Before joining Initiatives-Coeur, I have had mixed experiences as a company manager and owner in the fields of Internet and renewable energies, and as a sailor, participating twice in the Mini-Transat (3rd in 2003 and 2nd in 2007) and in «la solitaire du figaro » (ranking kept secret ;-)… retired and 25th…)… and winner of the Rolex Fastnet Race in Class40… with Tanguy de Lamotte in 2011.
Initiatives-Coeur has become a well-known and observed project over the years, thanks to Tanguy’s and Initiatives’ strong and sincere involvement. Beside Initiatives since 2009, two other private companies joined the project : K.Line in 2014 and Vinci Energies in 2017. Our sponsors share all the same dedication to promoting the cause of the charity Mécénat Chrirurgie Cardiaque who save children from developing countries with serious heart diseases. The particularity of our project is that our sponsors are sponsors of the boat on the one hand, and mecenes to Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque on the other hand. Altogether, 155 children were saved thanks to Initiatives-Coeur projet since 2008, meaning 1,86 m€ were generated in favor of Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque. Sam Davies joined Initiatives-Coeur as skipper of the boat since 2017 preparing for the 2020 Vendee Globe.
