    Christian BEC, Club GALAXIE President
  • Over the past few years, professionnal networks have grown more and more important. They allowed exchanges and collaboration between different economical actors so that they could combine their efforts to act in the face of a new, global Economy. The emergence of new industrial powers, the great social imbalances and the rapid technological changes within an international context have resulted in permanent changes in value chains. They require more and more performance, reactivity and constant adaptation from our organisations. Now, more than ever before, people and structures need to work together sharing their abilities and experiences, pooling their energies and developping solidarity initiatives. Today, Club Galaxie gathers around 80 companyand institution leaders who represent different professionnal sectors as varied as telecommunications, electronics, biotechnology, banking, insurance, consulting, service providers, the environment and of course space. These men and women share the same values and are committed to developping the economical environment of Toulouse and its region through a convivial and dynamic network.
