WORD FROM FRÉDÉRIQUE GIRARD-ORY, DERMSCAN CEO AND FOUNDER

Bioengineering and Medical PhD and graduate of l’Institut d’Administration des Entreprises.

“At first with Philippe Girard, then alone since 2000, I lead Dermscan with the same enthusiasm and passion for almost 30 years.
Innovate, develop, open up new markets are the lines of work I am focusing on while maintaining a pleasant atmosphere where everyone can fulfill their potential.
At Dermscan, internal promotion is favored but I remain convinced that offering a chance to those seeking a first job is also important.

Quite alert about parity, I encourage women that work with me on a daily basis to also take on new responsibilities and become part of the working world without second thoughts.

I am dedicated to offering you the best service by building with you trust necessary for an optimized development of your products.

This requires a  regular technological and regulatory watch as well as a constant adaptation of our teams and this is what precisely makes our job interesting.

This is why, to give you the best, since 2002 we are engaged in an ISO 9001 certification. We make a point of applying quality management principles that represent a continuous improvement source.

I am thus committed to devote our best efforts to offer you an optimized service, in France as abroad.

I thank you for your constantly renewed trust.”

 

Yours truly Frédérique Girard-Ory
