EFQM Announcement – Senior Financial Executive to join the EFQM Board

We are pleased to welcome Elodie Buronfosse, a senior finance executive, from the French global transport group, Keolis, to the Board of EFQM. Elodie is a passionate advocate of EFQM and will provide insight into the global transport industry and also lend her financial and transformation expertise to the Board Finance Committee.

After receiving her masters from ICN Business School, Elodie joined PwC, first in Paris, then in Lyon, where her clients represented a range of major French and International private and public organisations.

In 2014, Elodie joined Keolis Lyon that operates the public transport network of Lyon (2nd largest public transport network in France – 4500 employees). Her initial role was to work on the tender offer process that led to the renewal of the 6 years and 2.5 billion euros public service partnership contract, before becoming deputy CFO of the company in 2016.

In October 2019, Elodie was appointed CFO South East, France at Keolis Groupe – a division of around 40 transportation businesses stretching from Burgundy to the Riviera. 

EFQM CEO Russell Longmuir said “we are delighted that Elodie has agreed to join the Board of EFQM. To have an Executive of her standing on the Board will both help grow our presence in France and also bring financial expertise and insight as we continue our transformation journey”

We are also delighted to announce that Alessandro Carano, with his extensive experience at the EU Commission and EIB, has formally joined the EFQM Board as a Board member after acting as an attendee and advisor for 3 years.

Paul Little, Chairman of EFQM said, “The EFQM Board is incredibly grateful to Alessandro for providing his expertise and knowledge of the EU to us, and we look forward to continuing to benefit from his guidance as a member of the Board. To have these two new Board members at EFQM emphasises our desire to have a rich and diverse set of leaders supporting Russell and his executive team.”
