Laurent Cousin began his career in 1995 in Paris, in the Front Office of Credit Agricole on Agricultural futures markets and moved thereafter to an important French cooperative as a cereals trader and implemented the first Wheat indexation contracts based on MATIF with farmers.
In 1998 he joined ROQUETTE, a leader in specialty food ingredients and pharmaceutical excipients to manage sales of co-products to the feed industry in Europe. He opened the first MATIF account of ROQUETTE for hedging and developed indexation contracts for compound feed customers. After becoming Head of Sales, a transfer to ROQUETTE Russia, Laurent moved to Geneva, created the Group Margin Management department and was responsible for setting up ROQUETTE Switzerland.
Thanks to his extensive experience from a large number of ROQUETTE departments, he managed to have a holistic view on the margin creation and risk exposure of the company, which gave him the responsibility to implement Dynamic Margin Management concept in the Roquette Group worldwide.
