Daniel Derichebourg was, until April 18, 2023, Chairman and CEO of Derichebourg SA. He announced that he is resigning from his position as CEO of Derichebourg SA as well as from all his operational mandates within the Derichebourg Group, in order to fully focus on the recovery and development of the Elior Group.
A self-taught executive, he actively participated in the development of the family waste recovery business founded by his father. He became in charge of CFER in October 1996, leading the restructuring and development in France and internationally of the Compagnie Française des Ferrailles (which later became CFF Recycling and then Derichebourg SA). He oversaw the acquisition and restructuring of the Penauille Polyservices Group between 2004 and 2007 in order to transform Derichebourg SA into a global operator of environmental services for companies and communities. With a series of acquisitions (Lyrsa, Ecore, etc.), Daniel Derichebourg built Derichebourg SA into a global operator in waste recycling and business services, with sales of over 5 billion euros.
