In 2013, CMA CGM is celebrating its 35th Anniversary, 35 years of successful growth continuously driven by passion, the passion of one man, Jacques Saadé, for the company he built, his passion for the people who contributed to its success, his passion for world trade in which CMA CGM played such a significant part, his passion for the vessels which were built and which growing number and size illustrate the success of the original idea and the drive behind it.
You’ll find below the sixth episode of our saga dedicated to Jacques Saadé’s Group:
“Since 1978, we have been growing with the same passion and the same commitment to our core values of boldness, imagination, courage and integrity. The human touch is at the heart of these values and I would like to thank all the CMA CGM teams who also made the success of our Group with a special thought for Farid T. Salem who is standing beside me since the beginning of this adventure.
Today we are investing in the future and the development of our Group, not in short-lived short-term profit. We set ourselves ambitious goals and gave ourselves the necessary means to achieve them. We know how to be responsive and flexible which enables us to seize every opportunity. We try always to be innovative in order to stay one step ahead. Nothing great is achieved without inflated expectations!”, concludes Jacques Saadé.
