This winter seems to be endless
with already two snow falls and
very low temperatures. Let’s hope
the economy will not follow this
chilly atmosphere and will start to
pick up very soon.
We certainly started the year on a
very good note with our 6th edition of Crystal Peach. This year’s
awards went to SNF Inc. for the
French investment in Georgia and
Coca-Cola Enterprises for the
American investment in France.
Congratulations to the winners!

Atlanta is the home base of many very
small to small French companies often
managed by one or two people.
It can be a real challenge for these executives to incorporate and manage the
company here in Georgia.
At Facc we thought it might be useful
for them to get to know one another,
to share their experience, discuss their
needs and get help from professionals.
We decided to create a ‘Young Professional Club” (title to be discussed)
with executives and professional such
as Accounting and tax consulting, IT
consulting, Insurance, logistics and
supply chain specialists, commercial
realtors, bankers, lawyers, etc.
