Pepy Sets Himself a Tough Challenge at SNCF

French National Railways (SNCF) President and Chief Executive Officer Guillaume Pepy has launched Destination 2012, an ambitious five year plan to double SNCF's operating profit and increase turnover by 50 percent. Pepy, who assumed office earlier this year, believes that SNCF is facing two crises simultaneously, namely energy and the environment, and two impediments to internal transformation, namely network capacity and SNCF employee mentality. The author examines using SNCF's own resources for investing for the future as well as the necessity of innovation for SNCF's future success.
