Isabelle Kocher - Among The World's Most Powerful Women 2018

The 2018 World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list celebrates the icons, innovators and instigators who are using their voice to change power structures and create a lasting impact. This year, the 15th annual list welcomes 20 newcomers. We are very proud of the 15th place of Isabelle Kocher, CEO of Engie.

  • Kocher has led the world's largest non-state-owned energy company since 2016, seeing the company through a trying time after it lost billions in 2015.
  • In her first move as CEO, Kocher instituted a three-year plan to shift the company's portfolio from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
  • ENGIE has completed the strategic pivot ahead of schedule, divesting 20% of assets in fossil fuel-related assets.
  • She experienced a setback in 2018 when the board handed the chairman seat to Jean-Pierre Clamadieu rather than giving her the dual role.
  • As the only woman running a CAC 40 company, Kocher advocates for women at ENGIE with targets for at least 35% of "high-potential staff" to be women.
