Abstract

En 1992, Jean Gaulin constituait une societe ouverte afin d'acquerir les activites en aval de l'ancienne societe britannique Ultramar PLC. Depuis, la nouvelle societe Ultramar Corporation a fait de nombreuses acquisitions et fusionne avec Diamond Shamrock, ce qui lui a permis de poursuivre l'objectif que Jean Gaulin lui avait fixe au depart, soit devenir le chef de file de la distribution et du transport de produits petroliers en Amerique du Nord. Le cas retrace le parcours de ce leader du monde des affaires pour qui la competence professionnelle, la transparence dans les communications et la determination sont autant de valeurs qui revetent une importance de premier plan aussi bien pour lui que pour l'entreprise qui est la sienne depuis plus de 25 ans.
