Vision, Culture & Agility

About Us

Our Method

At VirtualExpo we aim to achieve and embrace diversity and balance in all forms. Our philosophy is focused on the spirit of 3 major principles: Vision – Culture – Agility. We believe that sharing and bringing this work culture to life is just as important as the company’s strategy. It helps us cooperate, communicate and celebrate one another while being surrounded by talent.

Our Culture

Our strong start-up culture is driven by the energy and personality of the company and its leaders. Their vision is one of a successful and innovative workplace where everyone can develop personally and professionally. Using agility methodology, a logical evolution of a model way of thinking, we adapt to our constantly changing and flexible environment. We encourage middle management to take on the role of a coach. Together, we focus less on hierarchy and more on what is important: teamwork, productivity and service.

Our background

We were founded in the 90’s by Corentin Thiercelin while he was still an engineering student. He identified a lack of effective tools available to help businesses and buyers in their search for industrial equipment and components. Corentin used the Internet as a medium for organizing and displaying the overwhelming number of industrial products available on the international market. Our first web portal, DirectIndustry, was launched in 2000 and later we expanded into 6 other major areas under the VirtualExpo Group.
