Launched 2 years ago and led by Eric Lenoir, Cartan Trade has established itself in the credit insurance market by adding capacity through a new, simplified, innovative and relevant product offering.

This project was completed in record time. Cartan Trade now has a solid, recognised team, with proven credibility in France, Benelux, Italy and the United Kingdom.

Today, Cartan Trade is opening a new chapter in its history with an ambitious new plan for the coming years.

In this context, the Board has decided to appoint Sebastien Guidoni, COO for the past 6 months, as CEO of Cartan Trade.
Sébastien’s mission will be to complete the acceleration phase of Cartan Trade with the challenge of successfully scaling it up.

Experienced in both sales and technical & financial management, he has demonstrated in multicultural contexts his ability to articulate, accelerate and deliver ambitious projects in an entrepreneurial way. His approach, both pragmatic and human-oriented, is driven by the desire to build diverse, complementary, and effective teams. 


Cartan Trade teams are ready to take on their new challenges (continuing to promote the sales dynamic, maintaining & strengthening underwriting discipline, encouraging & steering profitability while continuing to invest in technology & teams) with the reaffirmed support of its shareholders and individual partners, all of whom are fully committed to supporting the project.

The shareholders and Board members would like to thank Eric Lenoir for his key contribution and express their full confidence in Sébastien Guidoni, and the Cartan Trade’s team to carry out their missions successfully.
