Societe Generale has won first prize at the 5th annual eCAC40* Awards, organised by the editorial team of Les Echos Executives and Gilles Babinet, France’s Digital Champion at the European Commission, which reward the French top 40 companies for their digital maturity each year.

After ranking fourth in 2014 and 2015, then third in 2016 and second last year, Societe Generale Group has been recognised most advanced company in terms of digital transformation, across all evaluation criteria: digital culture, technological expertise, relationships with the innovative ecosystem, security, external communication.

“This first prize and our constant progression in the rankings since the 1st edition of eCAC40 reflect the strategic and coherent nature of our digital transformation in all its dimensions. This is the result of the extraordinary mobilization of all our teams in this transformation which is not only technological, but also - and above all - cultural. For several years, we have been committed to an open and stimulating innovation strategy in order to seize the opportunities offered by new technologies, with two priorities: better serving our clients and enable our employees to contribute to this deep transformation of our operational model.  Today, we are demonstrating our capacity to accelerate our digital transformation, which is at the heart of our Transform to Grow strategic plan,” explained Frédéric Oudéa, Chief Executive Officer of Societe Generale Group.
