Terror attack in Paris

Terror attack in Paris


Dear all,

As you may have learned, the French weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo was victim of a terrorist attack in their office in Paris, resulting in the deaths of twelve people and injuries of many others. 

It is with great sadness that I inform you that Frederic Boisseau, 42 years old, married with two children of 10 and 12, and an employee of Sodexo France since 2000, was among the victims of this attack. Frederic was in charge of the team handling the maintenance of the building, for the Real Estate Department of the City Hall of Paris, a client of Sodexo France. 

Please join me in sending our heartfelt thoughts to Frederic’s family and friends, and the colleagues who were with him this morning. 

To respond to your numerous expressions of support, this morning we opened a bank account under the name “Sodexo: We are Frédéric”, for donations in support of Frédéric’s family. The details are as follows:

Name: Sodexo Australia Pty Ltd

BSB No: 062-000

Acct No: 10537123

Bank: Commonwealth Bank

Ref: Sodexo: We are Frédéric

Sodexo will be matching all donations received.

All together, we refuse to tolerate that one of our colleagues should lose his life in such a tragic and unfair way, and for a cause so contrary to our values.
