Christine Blondel has 25 years of experience in the family business field and exposure to hundreds of family business cases through her teaching, writing, conferences, advising and board memberships.

As Lecturer of Family Business at INSEAD, she teaches the MBA elective in Fontainebleau and co-directs the one-week programme for business families: « The Family Enterprise Challenge ». She teaches in other business schools in Europe, Africa and North America and is a fellow at Cornell Smith family business initiative.

She coordinated INSEAD family enterprise activities from their creation in January 1997 until December 2007, and was the first Executive Director of the Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise.

She received the Family Firm Institute « Interdisciplinary Achievement Award » in 2017.

A graduate from INSEAD (MBA, Negotiation Dynamics, International Directors’ Programme, Value Creation for Owners and Directors) and Ecole Polytechnique France (M.Sc.), she worked 3 years as a management consultant before joining Procter & Gamble, where she held positions in Marketing and Finance.

Her four grown-up children are certainly an important part of her CV, and to some extent the fact that several family businesses can be found in her direct or indirect ancestry.
