Yacine-Alexandre Ryad has always been “instinctively drawn to the forest”. The forest is a major feature in his childhood memories, from walks with the family to den-building in the woods.
This young forestry entrepreneur soon realized that you can’t ‘make it up as you go along’ in this field.
Hence, after his high-school diploma he naturally went on to study forestry, continuing to do so until 2011.
His started work in 2011 with Auvergne Promobois (an organization providing support in the forest sector), where he stayed until 2013. There he worked as a project manager, working with the State and local authorities, a position that gave him an overview of the sector’s needs.
He also supervised the development of the Auvergne Forestry Work Quality Charter, encompassing all forest operations.
In 2013, he expanded his skills set when he started to work as a wood purchaser for a sawmill in Corrèze, later becoming procurement manager.
From 2013 to 2016, he worked as sector manager at BNE (Bois Négoice Energie). He was in charge of forestry management, forest works and trade: buying and selling timber. There he worked on the question of treating sawmill products and of recycled wood, another market sector.
In 2016, he took charge of forestry management and purchasing for a forestry group.
