Sanofi Espoir Foundation appoints new president

Xavier Darcos succeeds Jean-François Dehecq

Sanofi named Xavier Darcos as president of the Sanofi Espoir Foundation, succeeding Jean-François Dehecq.

Created in 2010 as part of Sanofi's social responsibility strategy, the Foundation's mission is to contribute to reducing inequalities in health and poverty across the globe.

Darcos said: "Presiding over the Sanofi Espoir Foundation is a great honor for me. I shall use my experience as ambassador to promote the Foundation's actions in terms of international solidarity.

“The nobleness of these commitments in favor of access to healthcare for the most defenseless populations and the results obtained make the Foundation all the more remarkable."

Darcos has held numerous posts as a civil servant and politician since 2002, including Minster of Labour, Social Affairs, Family, Solidarity and Cities from 2009 to 2010, and he has been an ambassador for France since 2005.

He also serves as permanent secretary of the Académie des sciences morales et politiques, to which he was elected in 2006, and has been a member of the Académie Française since June 2013.
