The Youth Action Council - comprised of nine Pernod Ricard employees from across the company under the age of 30 - is a think tank designed to deliver their generation’s vision on the Group’s strategic issues directly to top management.
For a second year, the nine members supervised by Pernod Ricard University will represent the Group at the One Young World Summit.
Alexandre Ricard, Youth Action Council, deputy chief executive officer said: “These young employees are the spokespersons of a new generation that is vital to Pernod Ricard. I want to give them the opportunity to express their opinion and to share their vision for the future of the Group.”
The members are elected for one year and can stand for re-election once.
