A word with our Managing Director
Managing Director IDEE
I am Jean-Philippe Dieudonné, the managing Director of IDEE GmbH since April 2021. Together with the IDEE-HQ team, it is a great honour and privilege to lead the next years of the already very successful and strong IDEE history. Our 13 members acting in 17 countries across Europe are leading players in their respective markets. They have been able to demonstrate the last couple of years, that despite the ongoing challenges, being private and family-owned companies, since many generations, with a solid entrepreneurial mentality, make them even stronger in achieving a regular growth. All our members are keen on learning from each other and sharing best practices for the benefit of the group. Our structure and organisation make us unique and different, but with the same target: adding value for our members and our contract suppliers.
The IDEE-HQ team, is working daily on making sure we increased the involvement and commitment of our members, ensuring the alignment on the IDEE strategy and working hand in hand with our suppliers. We have been engaging in a lot of activities and projects, which will continue the transformation of IDEE and make us a reference as a marketing group of independent wholesalers.
Our mission Enabling business.
We enable a competitive alternative to multinational companies for our members from the electrical wholesale and their customers. With a high level of competence and concentration on core activities, we bring high-quality, consulting-intensive products to regional markets throughout Europe. Our suppliers benefit from the professional and personal proximity between our member companies and their customers in industry and the electrical installation trade - because all business is local.
Our vision Leading the market.
We provide the best wholesale experience within Europe and within each national market: We offer our member companies the best prices and conditions, and for our suppliers from the industry we are the one, essential partner. With jointly developed logistics and marketing strategies, we bring their products to all relevant European markets, increasing our group's market share at the same time.
