« After 12 years of steady growth, teaming with Union Industrielle will enable us to deepen our position in the Alpes and to benefit from the strength and know-how of an exemplary   broker for corporate targets. The vision of our business and its evolution, the notions of independence and family ownership, the attachment to proximity and the quality of customer relations are all elements that convinced us that this merger project was a decisive step in the development of AGB Courtage. This will be of great benefit to the firm’s employees and clients. » according to Romain Passot, CEO of AGB Courtage
