A la force du poignet
Valérie Marrone has been awarded the Performance Prize because of the pugnacity that led her to co-manage JRM Domotique, the company she has been at the helm of since February 2017. Although she grew up in the world of construction (her father was a carpenter in Sanary), her baccalaureate and management training at Var Chamber of Commerce and Industry hardly predisposed her to become a business leader. She describes herself as self-taught and justifies this with her professional career. Following an internship at SOTRAM, she joined the public road works company as a secretary, switchboard operator, then accountant. When SOTRAM was bought by Eiffage Route Méditerranée, she became administrative and accounting manager of the Vitrolles branch, which has 170 staff. She stayed in this job, which normally requires an MA or MSc degree, for a decade. In early 2017, Valérie Marrone joined her husband, Jean-Robert Marrone, who founded JRM Domotique. This family business (their son, Adrien, also works there), is renowned for its efficiency and customer satisfaction, and operates mainly through recommendations. Valérie Marrone has brought a new dimension to the company thanks to her excellent communication skills: she designed the website, found a convenient geographical location (in Le Castellet), opened a showroom, and works within various networks. Valérie Marrone’s dynamic work ethic also translates into her commitment to public affairs and mandates in various professional organisations. She is president of the Femmes du BTP du Var (Var women in construction organisation), an elected member of the Var and Region Chamber of Trades and Crafts, and a member of the FCE – Toulon delegation, authorities which all benefit from her generosity, know-how and pragmatism.
Founded 20 years ago, this family business specialises in low-voltage systems. It carries out audits, studies and consultancy projects, produces, installs and maintains tailor-made solutions, provides after-sales services and even offers financing solutions. Its customers (local and regional authorities, educational institutions, companies and individuals) praise it for its green approach, long-term commitment, targeted solutions, skilled staff and responsiveness.
JRM Domitique installs and maintains alarm systems (security systems for the interior, exterior and surroundings, remote management, etc.), video surveillance, home automation systems, intercoms, networks and telephones (rental with option to buy, computer networks, certified installations, etc.), and automatic gates and garage doors.
