Marion François

General Manager French Guiana Procurement & Logistics Manager

Marion François, is the new Procurement and Logistics Manager having joined the Triton Team in October 2020.

Born in Paris, her first desire to travel was nurtured by her reading, before she chose a professional life made of challenges and adventure.

In 2004, Marion obtained her degree in mechanical and industrial engineering at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM) in Paris, interning with General Electric.  After graduation, she continued working for GE for another five years as a field engineer in charge of heavy-duty gas turbines maintenance and later on became Lead Field Manager, mostly in Europe.

Marion then decided to take a break from work to travel and finally settled in Terre Adélie in Antarctica, as District Manager for the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (TAAF) for a year. She represented the French government while coordinating teams and managing the technical, logistical and scientific operations.  She then became head of the TAAF Technical Services in Reunion Island for 8 years. She ensured the technical support of the French scientific bases located on 9 territories from the 11th to the 90th parallel South and its complex logistic chain.  Ready for a new challenge, Marion opted to join Triton to assist with Triton’s logistical needs entering into French Guiana and Suriname.
