Hélène Bernicot, Directrice générale du groupe Arkéa

In an article in the daily newspaper Le Télégramme, Hélène Bernicot, CEO of Crédit Mutuel Arkéa, reminds us of the stakes involved in the fight for Arkéa's autonomy, which is much simpler than it seems, could be summed up as follows: which bank do we want - us, individual customers, companies, local authorities, associations - for tomorrow?

These are the terms in which the debate about Arkéa is being framed.
