After obtaining a DESS in Economics, and with entrepreneurship in his soul, Gerard created Khi2, a market research company, in 1986. In 2002, he met the founder of BVA, Jean-Pierre Ville, in his search of a buyer for his company. Since he took over, Gerard has been leading BVA in to a new era, based on both an organic growth and an external growth policy. In 17 years, Gerard and his associates have lead a total of more than 25 acquisitions in France and internationally, making BVA one of the leaders of its sector worldwide.
After studying Sociology at Paris Nanterre University, Gaelle worked freelance for two years in the field of qualitative studies. She then joined BVA's Qual department in 2010.

Gaelle is passionate about architecture, decoration and arts & crafts; her sources of inspiration in everyday life.
Initially an ergonomist in a software publishing company, before attempting to conquer the Americas with a mobile telephone start-up, Pierre-Henry then became a freelance web application designer.
