Rodolphe Saadé presented yesterday in Marseille the first Jacques Saadé Award to the start-up Notilo Plus on the occasion of the Trophées de l’Economie 2018 organized by the French newspaper La Provence.

La Provence wanted to pay tribute to the outstanding entrepreneur and visionary that was Jacques Saadé by creating an award bearing the name of the founder of the CMA CGM Group.

The Jacques Saadé Award recognizes a start-up with strong entrepreneurial values, such as those embodied by the CMA CGM Group, and with a strong potential for development.
