It is with great sadness that the Recylex group announces the death of Yves Roche, at only 50 years of age.
Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Recylex S.A. and a specialist in the metals industry, Yves Roche was the great architect of the Group’s survival in the mid-2000s thanks to his courage and willingness to believe in the future of what was then the ruins of Metaleurop. Appointed CEO in 2005, he had built, negotiated and successfully completed in 2015 the company’s 10-year continuation plan, set up a new management team and reoriented the group’s strategy to make it a specialist in the circular economy. In 2007, under his leadership, the Group became Recylex to reflect its industrial vision and its confidence in the future.
All the teams of the Recylex group are joining forces with his family and friends at this painful time.
