Yann Laroche, HR and Communications Director of the EDF Group until 2008, has been a major contributor to EDF's partnership with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. He initiated the spread of the Olympic values within the company as a tool to building of the EDF Group. Yann pushed for EDF to become a Sustainability Partner and therefore inspired many of the Sustainability projects linked to the Games for EDF. Yann has a particularly generous personality that embodies the values of the Group and the Olympics and has worked to develop the human dimension of EDF. He is also an avid runner... who would make a perfect torchbearer!
