Olivier Ferrand was a figure of commitment, a visionary, a man of culture and tolerance. His qualities led to a rare form of politics as free and constructive expression.
It is this expression that we admire as it advances society, through rousing debates over ideas, and builds the future.
Tilder has had the honor of supporting Olivier’s projects, particularly his initiatives within Terra Nova, on numerous occasions in the past. Recently, we set out to share and spread his enthusiasm to all those involved the process of the French Socialist Primary, of which he was the initiator in French political life.
Democracy in our country owes him a part of its new modernity.
Our thoughts and warm regards are above all with his wife and daughter, Ariane. Olivier leaves many friends behind in grief yet his enthusiasm, his smile and his spirit remain at the bottom of our hearts.
