Appointed as the new president of AREP by Patrick Ropert, CEO of Gares & Connexions, Raphaël Ménard will confirm AREP as a leader in low-carbon construction and the design of resilient cities.

An architect and engineer (Ecole Polytechnique and the Ponts et Chaussées), Raphaël takes over from Etienne Tricaud, who founded AREP with Jean-Marie Duthilleul in 1997. Before AREP, Raphaël was director of strategic foresight at EGIS and the founding president of Elioth. With a proven track record in the industry and a deep understanding of environmental issues both at city and building scale, he will set AREP on the path towards mobility of the future. For the past 20 years, AREP Group has been active in urban planning, architecture and design both in France and worldwide. The appointment of Raphaël Ménard will add fresh impetus over the coming months.
