Jean-Philippe Ricard is appointed CEO of Freyssinet as of 1st January 2022

We are pleased to announce that Jean-Philippe Ricard is our new Chief Executive Officer since the beginning of the year. Jean-Philippe succeeds Patrick Nagle, CEO of Freyssinet since July 2016, who will enjoy a well-deserved retirement!

A graduate of the Ecole Nationale des Techniques Avancées and the Ecole Polytechnique (X97), Jean-Philippe Ricard joined Freyssinet in 2016 as deputy CEO and operational director of the North Atlantic zone.

Jean-Philippe began his career at Bouygues Offshore as a marine works methods engineer and then as a sales engineer for the Latin America zone, before joining VINCI Construction Major Projects in 2008 to manage Marine Works, commercial development in North Africa and then Offshore Wind Energy.

In 2012, he became director of Eiffage’s Major Projects division as head of Civil Engineering Major Works, Industrial and Nuclear Civil Engineering, and then civil engineering design offices. He created Eiffage Fondations in 2014.

Thanks to its strong local presence and its networking capacity, Freyssinet is able to put its technical expertise at the service of our clients’ construction and repair projects in the four corners of the globe. I have found strong values within our teams based on innovation, engineering expertise and recognition of the skills of people in the field.
