We are all familiar with her drive, outstanding professionalism, courage and ability to lead her teams.” He added, “Financial metrics are naturally one of the factors in this reward, but jurors also look for powerful personalities. I have no doubt that Sophie’s personal commitment to essential programs such as WAAG (Women At Accor Generation) or Solidarity Accor, as board member, also caught the Jury’s eye.”
