PORTRAIT. Former boss of The Phone House and Virgin Mobile takes over from Pierre Gattaz as “boss of bosses”. Climax.

Geoffroy Roux de Béziers wanted this very much, and for a long time. He wanted the presidency of Medef. In the end, he made it. He had already considered running in 2009, but Laurence Parisot gave him priority. In 2013, he was Medef’s presidential candidate but gave up at the finish line, withdrawing his candidacy at the last moment to support Pierre Gattaz. This time he held on to the end and beat his rival Alexander Sobo. And hop, here’s another line in the resume of Geoffroy Roux de Béziers, 56, already embroidered with gold threads. Before becoming the “boss of bosses”, he had already done everything, and almost everything was also successful.

Brilliant studies, employment in the prestigious CAC 40 group and a little extra contact, an entrepreneurial adventure in the field of mobile telephony, with good luck at the end of the journey. He is also a sought-after administrator, especially at PSA Peugeot Citroën or drone manufacturer Parrot, and has earned the label of “a sweet, lucrative and photogenic boss to bring on TV.” He was also president of the Croissance Plus association. But wouldn’t Geoffroy Roux de Béziers be a bit of a masochist? This is because becoming president of Medef promises you access that may not be envied: “the most hated man in France…”. However, he seems to stick with it and has every intention of avoiding the curse of Avenue Bosquet. When victory was announced, his friends breathed a sigh of relief. Happy for him, of course, but also selfish for their own peace in the coming weeks. Because the loser Geoffroy Roux de Beziers makes his entourage pay for it for a long time. Anger, dishonesty, nervousness. He doesn’t fail.

40 million euros in your pocket

The most critical ones are happy to note that yes, Geoffroy Roux de Béziers did succeed in life, but that he has a relative merit, because he was born in a beautiful area (Neuilly), in a bourgeois family, educated, loving and caring. In a word, another one born with a teaspoon in his mouth … Undoubtedly, this helps, but is not always a sufficient condition for success. The essence of the personality of his father. Bruno Roux de Beziers, who died in December 2008, is a member of the Foreign Legion who served during the war in Algeria and was wounded there, a former officer of the 1st Foreign Cavalry Regiment, a graduate of HEC and Harvard, known for his intelligence and righteousness. This father, always present with his three children, made a career as a banker in Worms et cie, but never reached the Grail, the status of managing partner. The son thought for a long time that his father was the victim of injustice, that he did not have the career he deserved.

Geoffroy Roux de Béziers received his degree from Essek and his master’s from Dauphine and went to Lorient in 1984 to do his military service with the naval commandos. He then joined L’Oréal where he worked for seven years. The current alternates between loud-mouthed Roux de Béziers and omnipotent CEO Lindsey Owen-Jones. The first one was sent to Poland, which was more of a move away from central authority than a promotion… This prompted him to leave the cosmetics giant and start his own business. In 1996, he branched out into telephony, creating The Phone House, a chain of stores specializing in the sale of mobile phones. In 2000, he sold the company to the English group Carphone and embezzled almost 40 million euros. Then he took over as head of the mobile operator Virgin Mobile.

He refuses to dine with… Emmanuel Macron

The technological revolution is at the heart of his professional life, and it was at the center of his campaign for president of Medef. This pure Parisian, who has visited more than 80 French territories in recent weeks, has never ceased pointing to the huge technological changes that are taking place, in particular the AI ​​revolution, which will lead to the disappearance of many professions. He is also supported by a hundred French tech bosses, including Frédéric Mazzella (Blablacar), Marc Simoncini (Sensee), Henri Seydoux (Parrot), Stephane Treppose (Sarenza). He also intends to bring the subject of Gough’s taxation to Europe. Roux de Bézieux cultivates American style.

Medef President Geoffroy Roux de Béziers ruled on Europe 1 on Wednesday that the Nupes left-wing alliance program is leading to a “huge recession” and even “bankruptcy” for France.

“The Nupes program is the La France insoumise program, nothing more, nothing less, except for a few commas,” said the leader of the first French employers’ organization, who says he has carefully studied the presidential candidate’s program. Jean-Luc Melenchon.

This program “will lead us straight into a huge recession, and if it does not change course in the middle, to bankruptcy,” Geoffroy Roux de Béziers assured.

“I’m not a partisan, I put myself only on the economic level,” he clarified.

“Price freeze, massive increase in Smic: all small businesses will be in terrible scissors as they will no longer be able to raise their prices, while their raw materials increase, gas bills increase, and on the other hand, their salaries will increase. “, explained President Medef.

“The first reflex is I stop hiring, I end all my fixed term contracts, all my interim contracts,” he continued.

And “the French will not consume, contrary to what Jean-Luc Mélenchon says, they will keep their savings simply because they are afraid,” he predicted if Nupe won the legislative elections.

Geoffroy Roux de Béziers also argues that if retiring at 60 “does not have a direct impact on finances, it will entail absolutely huge costs – from 80 to 100 billion dollars – in the long run” and that “immediately, interest rates in France will rise.” “.

According to him, “the reality is that Jean-Luc Mélenchon knows that this program is not applicable, it is demagogy.”

In the case of the Nupes majority in the National Assembly, the leader of the employers plans, as in 1981, “a program on the left, very left, but” in 18 months we will change the prime minister and return to reality. because, unfortunately, the market economy has foundations.”
