Serving companies, GAC advises and acts on 2 major levers of competitiveness: innovation financing and international development.
After founding his first company in 1988 — the EFE group, which became a leading European training, consulting and publishing firm — Patrice Bougon, a former tax lawyer, wanted to offer his customers consulting services that combined financial, tax and technical expertise. In 2002, this French “serial entrepreneur” created GAC, an acronym standing for Grande Armée Conseil (as the first office was located next to the Champs-Elysées in Paris, on the Grande Armée Avenue) and for its international brand Global Approach Consulting.
A new “auditing, consulting, training” concept for managing local taxes was born!
