Alain Sarfati, a graduate of the prestigious ‘Sciences Po’ university, with a degree in Law and Economic Affairs, chose to follow the family tradition by joining the textile and clothing sector.
To do so, he took courses at the Ecole Supérieure des Industries du Garment (ESIV) and climbed through the ranks, ultimately directing several factories manufacturing women’s ready-to-wear in France.
He thus combines technical expertise with the discipline of financial management.
In the 1980s, anticipating the difficulties facing the production sector in France, he decided to embark on offshore manufacturing. He began with Portugal but later changed countries, in a constant search for greater competitiveness and the best value for money. After organising the offshoring of several French brands in Hungary, Poland and Bulgaria, he opted to focus his attention on Ukraine.
