We know that the most important asset that our company has is its people.
Here are some examples!
Hervé and Pierrick
Hervé: "I spend almost 6 months on the field, or on preparation for future missions.One of the advantages of international missions is of course the journey, the discovery of new landscapes, new countries. Most of the time, we do not see much of the country in which we are deployed, sometimes we only go from the airport to the commercial port to board the chartered ship for offshore projects and reverse journey when the mission is over. I prefer missions in coastal areas that allow a little more discovery of the country and its culture, but in return, these missions are more tiring both morally and physically".
Pierric: "For a year, I surveyed the North Sea to perform various missions of bathymetry, sonar surveys, detections of metal objects using magnetometers, etc ... I joined Creocean in August 2018 to know a new environment and get closer to La Rochelle, my adopted city. I like to dig my head to answer the problems of always different fields.No two projects are alike, there is always surprises (good or bad...), stressful situations to manage and it's something that I particularly like! "
Human Resources, Personnel Administration - Pilot Training & Quality HR Process
"I have a pivotal and consultative role for the 70 employees to accompany, I process information and coordinate it so that it is understood and accessible to all, and I also have a role of proximity with the management department to put into action the various topics related to human resources (training, recruitment, personnel administration ...). My priority is to make myself available, to listen and to provide advice to all employees. This requires above all to be very responsive. The key to success is knowing how to step back when necessary, and keep in mind that employees are the company's greatest asset."
Project Director, Specialist International Project Manager
"Doctor in Chemistry and Microbiology of water, I am in charge of developing international projects with public funders: foreign governments and multilateral development banks.
Arrived at Creocean in 1993, I created and managed the agency "CREOCEAN PACA-Corse" until 2003 before becoming Head of the International Business Development and of CREOCEAN Qatar (Doha) and Morocco (Casablanca) agencies.
Then from 2011 to 2013, I was responsible for CREOCEAN Pacific agencies in Punaauia (French Polynesia) and Nouméa (New Caledonia).
My commercial role is now to develop the diversity of the company's business with foreign public owners, mainly African, and if possible to include this development in a Keran Group strategy.
No field study was conducted as originally written. The satisfaction was to be able to solve / overcome each technical difficulty or human relationship! With time, only good vibrations remain. "
Engineer in charge of studies in marine and coastal environment (Channel-North Sea Agency).
"Holding a master's degree in biological oceanology from the University of Lille, I specialized during my training in benthic ecology and food web at Wimereux Marine Station and Agrocampus West.
Before joining Creocean, I worked in the "Cellule de Suivi du Littoral Normand" as a technician and engineer. The opportunity of a life led me to Terre Adélie, based on Dumont d'Urville for a wintering in Antarctica. As a marine biologist, I joined the MNHN (REVOLTA) and the LOCEAN laboratory (ICELIPIDS) teams.
The territory of the Channel - North Sea Agency is extensive and presents many facets, but that of Creocean being even larger, I have been able to work on a wide variety of projects located in distant lands and with many colleagues: Brest, Hossegor, Port-La Nouvelle, Corsica and French Guiana !"
Specialized in marine biology and coastal development
"I have a professional Master in Oceanography, specializing in economics and environment. Behind this title, there is, above all, the desire to go beyond the context of pure marine biology and ecology, and to link the environment with uses of the coast.
I like to say that I am a Swiss army knife! I participate in a wide variety of projects: environmental monitoring, regulatory files for development projects, assistance to environmental project management, but also studies on territorial development or management as the writing of marine chapters of Concerted Territorial Planning Scheme or Coastal Planning Schemes ... I never get bored !"
Coral reefs and sea quality measurement specialist
"I am a senior sea technician with a Master of Advanced Studies on coral ecosystems. I am a professional diver and I have a state diving licence. Since 2008, I have been at the Creocean Pacific Agency after a first experience in Martinique, then in Monaco at the Scientific Center and at the Aquarium, where I was involved, among other things, in the multiplication of corals.
I fell in love with Polynesia at the end of my studies. I took care of the design and implementation of underwater trails, educational marine areas with the realization of sites ecological status and interventions with school children or management of ecotourism sites.
I organize and participate in field missions and in everything related to coral removal or reef restoration. As our agency is isolated with a maximum of time difference, we must be multi-skilled !"
Marine biologist and professional diver
"Following my PhD Thesis in Science: Biology of organisms and populations, I gained more than 15 years of experience in tropical marine environment (Indian Ocean, Tropical Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean) and Mediterranean.
Project Director at Creocean since 2015, and now Head of Creocean Caribbean Agency, I work on public tenders for Martinique and the Caribbean zone and I am involved in commercial development. I also try to be creative and offer to prime contractors innovative studies that can enrich the knowledge of coastal environments.
I study the characterization and monitoring of the state of health of the natural environment through the ecosystems study (seagrass beds, coral reefs) subjected to different pressures, and through the monitoring of the coral colonies transplanted by Creocean within the framework of compensatory measures for major works.
Currently, I characterize the Martinique beaches and their shoreline in order to contribute to the definition of the national indicator of coastal erosion."
Engineer in coastal dynamics
"I am graduated from Ecole Centrale, a French Engineering School in Nantes, and post-graduated in Oceanography from the University of Southampton.
I studied modeling and physical oceanography, but also the water quality, biogeochemistry and ocean acidification I really enjoy working on a variety of topics and everything about oceans, whatever the field, is very interesting to me.
After my studies, I logically oriented myself towards design offices because I like the multidisciplinary and applied side but also because it allows being part of research projects. An important part of our work is to keep abreast of the research results and to apply it on concrete cases!
I joined the hydrodynamic and hydrosedimentary Creocean team in February 2013 after my studies. I work a lot on the implementation of hydrodynamic and hydrosedimentary models as well as on the analysis of data measured at sea, waves, currents, water levels but also sometimes temperature, salinity and turbidity for various projects (monitoring of wastewater treatment plants discharges, implementation of offshore wind turbines, port works ...)."
Doctor of Marine Geosciences, Technical Adviser Geosciences
"After a PhD in Marine Geosciences (thesis in 1999 and awarded the National Prize of Geophysics and Geodesy in 2000) and two post-docs, I got an engineering degree in marine engineering in 2003, when I joined CREOCEAN as marine geologist. Head of Mission on many surveys at sea, I am specialized in the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of geophysical data to meet different project needs.
I had the opportunity to travel but geophysical missions can be 24 hours-day missions with 12 hour shifts! My passport has a lot of exotic countries stamps but I still spent a lot more time at Le Tréport than in Tahiti! In 2014, through my work, CREOCEAN won the Global Innovation Contest with MESSIDOR project. This project will develop a method to detect small metal-rich geological objects that are lost at average depths of 2000 m in the immensity of the ocean."
Technician in Oceanography, HSE Coordinator
"In October 2000, I joined CREOCEAN for an internship as technician and assistant engineer until June 2001 after obtaining my diploma of Advanced Technician in oceanography with a specialty in marine environment. This internship allowed me to get a permanent contract as Oceanography Advanced Technician. Over the years, my work has evolved. In 2003, I began to be integrated in international projects teams. In 2005, I became a professional diver which allowed me to participate to new projects. In 2010, I became the technical referent for all diving safety aspects . In 2012, I was appointed HSE (Health Safety Environment) coordinator and in 2013 technical referent with regard to diving part and video tools used on many projects."
Head of P.A.C.A. CORSICA Agency
"Head of PACA CORSICA CREOCEAN Agency based in La Seyne-sur-Mer (dept 83) since 2005, I am a university engineer specialized in physical oceanography and coastal management.
I work on quite varied studies reflecting CREOCEAN multi- disciplinary competences. This can range from purely oceanographic studies to the monitoring of the quality of the marine environment in terms of sea discharges or dredging. I may also complete studies on the successful integration of facilities on the coast or at sea. My role is also to promote the skills of the company in these regions. I also have the chance to manage a team of 5 people.
I am also, since early 2014, sales coordinator for French CREOCEAN agencies.
I love, in my work, combining human contact with highly technical and scientific aspects. I also like to be a teacher to our customers in order to promote and develop environmentally friendly projects on our beautiful Mediterranean shores."
