Before

“A 57 years old guy, rebel and humanist who trusts people.  Example: Serge Massat almost never signs a written contract. My goal is to act very professionally and please the client as well as my employees.  I work with moral contracts.  If they are pleased, they stay; if not, they are free to go!” (Revue TBScope)

“Our main advantage is cultural.  We are not pencil pushers.  We think when we work and we try to find the best solution for our client”. (Webfrancia)

“I love my work, it is a passion and I think I do it properly.  I am not an “auditor” per say, or a fundamental tax person.  I am more of a creator.  I “crated for myself when I opened my Mexican office… and I love to create for my clients”. (Revue Le Moci)

“My client is my number one priority, then comes my employees… and money is my least priority.” (Webfrancia)

In order to do so, one must work with an entrepreneurial spirit and a dynamic vision of the financial management. (Option Finance)

"When starting operation abroad, French companies concentrate their efforts and means on the commercial teams.  If the subsidiary is too small to afford a full time CFO, they still need adequate controls, explains Serge Massat.  His solution?  Offer to these companies a custom made service including housing of the subsidiary as well as full fledge financial management”. (Revue Tertiel)
