Interview with David Carr – Chairman of the Business and Management Faculty Board
Analytical skills and greater connectivity assist the interpretation of data to help drive sustainability and productivity at a time of rapid change, says David Carr
My move from accounting practice to business was driven by an interest in sustainability and doing something that would make a difference in the long term. I always felt that the economy didn’t do enough to focus on environmental issues. That was one of the factors that led me to working for global company Bouygues 25 years ago. Since 2001, I’ve been with Bouygues Energies and Services, part of the company’s wider Bouygues Construction division which also includes Colas Group (civil engineering/infrastructure) and Bouygues Immobilier (real estate). Other Bouygues brands are Bouygues Telecom, TF1 Group and Alstom.
