DIOT SIACI becomes Official Supplier to the Transat Jacques Vabre Normandy – Le Havre

Paris, May 17, 2023 – The Diot-Siaci Group, French and European leader in corporate insurance brokerage, and the organizing partners, Le Havre, Jacques Vabre and the Normandy region, are pleased to announce their partnership for the 16th Coffee Route (Route du Café). 

In celebration of its thirtieth anniversary and sixteenth Coffee Route, every two years Diot-Siaci partners with the transatlantic race connecting Le Havre in Normandy and Martinique.

With a privileged role as official supplier to the Transat Jacques Vabre Normandy Le Havre, this partnership is the result of Diot-Siaci’s:

  • commitment to the French overseas territories where the Group operates through Diot-Siaci Outre-Mer
  • its strong position in marine insurance
  • its attachment to sailing, a sustainable sport from which its logo is inspired.

The Transat Jacques Vabre Normandy Le Havre and Diot-Siaci share common values such as excellence and team spirit, with Normandy and Martinique, two territories where the Group has a strong presence, as the anchor.

This partnership is an opportunity to experience moments of emotion and sharing with employees, clients and partners. The race starts at the end of October from Le Havre and finishes in Fort de France, with an arrival expected in the first two weeks of November.

Cédric Charpentier, Global CEO of Diot-Siaci: “We are proud of this partnership with the famous Transat Jacques Vabre Normandy Le Havre, whose values we share and which symbolizes our commitment to our clients in the French overseas territories and all over the world.”
