ANNE FRISCH

Academic Director HEC Paris

Biography

​A former Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and Board Director of international companies in manufacturing and energy (Rio Tinto, Suez …), Anne has led technological capital-intensive businesses through deep cycles of change and multiple crisis for more than 30 years.​

She now returned to her alma mater HEC Paris to teach corporate finance, strategy and leadership. In addition to Masters and Executives programmes, Anne also designs learning journeys for corporate clients. ​

An entrepreneur at heart, through her own company AquaFin (www.aquafin.fr), she delivers training programs based on playful business games and simulations. Her learning experiences are designed to energise, enlighten, and empower participants of all levels, from young talents to senior executives. ​

A multilingual global citizen, Anne has lived and worked in more than a dozen countries, where she managed large multicultural teams. She has also strongly contributed to the internationalisation of HEC Alumni, as President of the International Commission, and member of the Board of Directors. ​

Committed to a positive impact of business, all her programmes integrate an environmental and sustainability dimension.
