In order to better face the new challenges in the field of security, Amarante's team integrates skills and expertise from both the military field (former executives of elite units of the French Armed Forces) and civilians (specialised engineers, graduates of elite higher education institutions).
Alexandre Hollander is one of Amarante’s founders and has been running the company since its inception.
After beginning his military career in the Marine Troops, Alexandre Hollander joined the Special Forces and Intelligence Services, where he served for ten years in operational units and staff.
Alexandre graduated from the Ecole Spéciale Militaire of Saint Cyr (1991-1994), was certified by the Ecole de Guerre (2004-2005) and holds an MBA from HEC (2003-2004). He also took part in the 22nd session of the National Institute of Higher Studies of Security and Justice (INHESJ - 2010-2011).
In 2011, HEC awarded Alexandre and Amarante the Prix des Mercures HEC, rewarding the best newly established firms.
