Team spotlight – meet Vincent Joullié
We’ve worked hard to recruit some of the most experienced global talent from the world of design, build, construction and project management. Each month, we put one of our colleagues in the spotlight so you can learn a little more about their role…
- Describe your job in one paragraph
My job is to ensure that each and every Agilité Solutions construction site is compliant with Hygiene and Security rules and regulations, allowing people to work in a good and safe environment, which in turn inspires a high work performance. These precautions are particularly necessary in the construction field.
- Which one word would colleagues use to describe you?
Reactive – mainly possible by always being active.
- Why do you think Agilité stands out from competitors?
The team is made of people with rich and complementary backgrounds, skills and personalities. The management is very experienced, focused on business, with a strong knowledge and network in the industry. Every day is met with enthusiasm and dynamism, the key to success.
- You have worked in some amazing places around the world. Which has been your favourite?
I would pick Australia – my time there taught me solid environmental values. I also became aware of strong organisation and communication skills, allowing people to work in a peaceful state of mind while seeking true meaning in their jobs.
- What’s your biggest career highlight to date?
Installing a welfare facility in 72 hours for a project involving 150 workers in the centre of Paris. There was only a short period of time between getting the contract signed and actually commencing the project. I was so excited about getting started and I believe this energy is very important when you’re facing big challenges. And, if you think it’s not challenging enough, you’ve never experienced Parisian traffic!
- The phone rings and it’s your dream client… who is it?
Probably a sport stadium as I’m a fervent football fan. I’ve never taken on a stadium project before but it’s a growing industry and it would be fun to be part of the evolution. I also think I would be challenged in terms of safety precautions.
- What key piece of advice would you give to a client planning a fit-out project on a budget?
Never neglect security during the project! As a definition, it is a priority, but it can also become an opportunity for the customer to show good values and communicate their identity.
- What is the best feature you’ve ever helped a client achieve in their commercial or retail space?
Helping the client achieve quality delivery of their space, by ensuring their safety and environmental goals are accomplished.
- When you’re not at work, where are we most likely to find you?
I wish I could spend more time on a golf course as it’s one of my hobbies, but it requires a lot of free time which, for the moment, I prefer to spend with my two year old daughter. It’s not a sport but still requires a lot of energy!
- What’s next for Agilité?
The world has been strongly impacted this year. I hope this experience has taught us all to be more sensitive about the environment, hygiene, safety and quality.
