[In brief] Agathe MONPAYS, Ophélie VANBREMEERSCH: 2 IÉSEG graduates on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list!

Every year, Forbes France rewards the rising stars of the French entrepreneurial ecosystem with its 30 Under 30 ranking. Each award winner represents a new generation of leaders, creators, artists and athletes under the age of thirty, each revolutionizing their own sector and breathing new life into fields undergoing rapid technological change.

This year, 2 IÉSEG graduates have been named for the prestigious “Forbes 30 Under 30” list: Agathe MONPAYS, Managing Director of Leroy Merlin France, and Ophélie VANBREMEERSCH, founder of Lunettes de Zac.

Agathe MONPAYS graduated from IÉSEG Grande École Program in 2016. She joined Leroy Merlin soon after, first as Area Manager, then as Store Director in Tourcoing. In 2022, she is appointed CEO, Greece & Cyprus, before being named CEO of Leroy Merlin France in 2023.

Ophélie VANBREMEERSCH graduated from the Master in International Business (MIB) in 2023. An entrepreneur at heart, she founded “Lunettes de ZAC”, an eco-responsible optician whose aim is to collect, recondition and put back on sale the 110 or so million pairs of glasses which lie dormant at the bottom of our drawers in France…

Congratulations to Agathe and Ophélie for this prestigious nomination, which rewards careers that inspire the young people of today and tomorrow.
