2018 Winner, Lucien Besse, Co-Founder and CEO, Shippeo.
The IVY Award is an annual award presented to an exceptional candidate under 30 from the technology sector who stands out in what he has achieved. The Jury, which is chaired by Pierre Aussure, aims to award a manager who has been outstanding and who will continue to grow and become a key player in the technology sector. Pierre Aussure and the IVY professionals carry out interviews during the year and candidates are narrowed down to five pre-Winners, then three Winners who will go on to the Grand Oral.

The executive search consultant is always on the lookout for talented professionals. The search for the IVY Award winner follows the same train of thought. It is a search to find the best young up and coming manager in the technology sector. Emphasis is put on youth and the possibility of identifying young talent at an early stage.
