Interview with Benoît Rolland Jacob, Financial and Legal Director

Benoît Rolland Jacob, Financial and Legal Director

Guarantee the security of everyday operations

When he joined the Group, in 1994, Benoît Rolland-Jacob’s mission was to structure the management control of the three companies that formed the Group at the time. As the Group expanded and he began to develop a trusting relationship with Jacques Royer, this reserved individual was given broader responsibilities. “My role is to ensure that day-to-day operations are secure and to prepare the ground for all the Group’s growth projects.” This brings him into contact with different teams: financial, accounts, management control, customer credit – essential – and legal activities. These are currently being reinforced as the number of brands increases. “We need to be experts in company law, commercial leases and commercial law – including intellectual property, licence law and trade name law -, contract law and disputes, of course,” explained Benoît Rolland-Jacob. 


The preparation of the growth operations is exciting

Apart from day-to-day activities, preparing growth operations is fascinating as the examination of all the legal and financial aspects will help the Royer Group decide whether or not to continue with a project and its financing. And the Group has no shortage of development projects in Europe and Asia, and is looking to incorporate a lot of new brands! Finally, digitised invoices and optimised reporting will help us become more efficient. A final word? “I love this job for its variety, because I’m doing it in a family firm that’s running projects on an international scale,” said Benoît Rolland-Jacob.
