Hello! Meet the Team

Thierry Plagué

Thierry Plagué

I am 55 years old, a business owner and a marathoner. If I had to summarize it would be "HYPER" My brain does not know the "off" button There is always a way to do more, to do better. To choose is to give up and to give up is very difficult when you are interested in so many things for which you can provide solutions. This vision allows me to anticipate the needs of tomorrow.

It is said that behind every great man is a woman. I like to market and sell the products that Thierry designs because they are always very ingenious, and it is motivating to be the first on the market to offer a new product.

Seamstress at Guardtex for 11 years, I spend 4 months a year on my boat. In November 2021, I will leave the Canaries to go to the Antilles, and I plan to finish my round the world stage in 8 years. The team is expecting 2 events, my entry into New York and that I invite them when I am in Polynesia.

Seamstress for 7 years at Guardtex, I am passionate about fishing. During my lunch break I put my paddle in the water and fish for the bass for the evening. And if I'm late, it's because I fell in the water and had to come home to put on dry clothes!

Seamstress for 4 years at Guardtex, I have a stopwatch in my head. I always sew faster; I love to challenge myself. Like when I run.
