Eric Donnet elected Pierre d’Or Manager of the Year 2018

In the sumptuous salons of Opéra Garnier, at the 20th ceremony of the Pierres d’Or (Golden Stones), which rewards every year leading figures and achievements in real estate in France, Groupama Immobilier CEO Eric Donnet won his first Pierre d’Or, in the Manager of the Year category.

He received the award from François Grandvoinnet, Chairman of Aviva Investors Real Estate France, in the presence of former President Nicolas Sarkozy, the initiator of the Grand Paris project.

Eric Donnet said: “I’m deeply honoured by this award. Rather, we are deeply honoured, because the accolade is as collective as individual.” He added that “perhaps you can tell a good manager by what happens in his absence and by the trust he can give his team”.

Read (in French) the portrait of Eric Donnet by Valérie Garnier, co-founder and editor of Immoweek, published in the Pierres d’Or 2018 yearbook.

Groupama will unveil today an outline of the future Groupama Campus, the first real campus in the La Défense business district of Paris. Groupama Campus aims to become the most accessible campus in the Grand Paris area.

Groupama brought together five entirely renovated and restructured buildings on the terraces of the Arche de la Défense, adjacent to Paris proper, covering a total surface area of 65,000 m² (700,000 square feet). It is France’s second largest leasehold of 2017.

3,300 Groupama employees and eight Paris Region entities will be based here.

This real estate project combines three elements that are usually considered incompatible:

  • the characteristics of a real campus: five buildings, including a facilities and relaxation area, green spaces, pooled services, and seamless movement between the various sections.
  • great transport connections: directly on the RER A subway line and on the future E and 15 lines
  • a diversified urban environment: 500 companies, housing, 45,000 students, the new U Arena…

Groupama Campus is one of the symbols of La Défense’s transformation: known chiefly for its skyscrapers, the business district will henceforth be thought of in terms of its campuses, horizontal and open onto their urban surroundings.
