Cap40 Business Wednesday with Sébastien Crozier, CEO of Orange Horizon.
Sébastien Crozier will introduce the development plan of Orange Horizon in Africa and more particularly in South Africa.
Sébastien began his career as leader of a telecommunications centre (telematics) between 1991 and 1994.

About Orange Horizons:
In January 2013, Orange launched a new subsidiary called Orange Horizons. This aims to seek out new business opportunities and provide a new means of support for customers travelling abroad in countries where the Group is not already present as a mass-market telecoms operator. Six months later, Orange Horizons is present in seven countries including South Africa, Italy, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark. In addition to the launch of local websites and e-commerce activities, Orange Horizons recently moved to a new stage of its development by opening physical stores with local partners in both South Africa and Portugal.
