Sylvain Maillard (born 28 April 1974) is a French entrepreneur[1] and politician of La République En Marche! (LREM) who has been serving as a member of the National Assembly since the 2017 elections, representing Paris.[2]

Early life and career[edit]

Maillard grew up in Versailles, Yvelines and went on to study accounting and auditing at ICS Bégué in Paris and obtained in 1998, the specialized master's degree "Entrepreneurs-Pedagogy HEC Entrepreneurs" [3] from the Grenoble Business School. Participating in the Erasmus programme, he studied political science at the University of Munich. In December 1999, he began his national service in Stuttgart as a cooperant abroad.

Maillard returned to France in April 2001, creating the company Alantys Technology (a company specializing in the distribution of electronic components) in Argenteuil in the Val d'Oise, then several of its subsidiaries. The company is still active as of 2019.[4][5]

Political career[edit]

A successive member of the Union for French Democracy, the Centrists and the Union of Democrats and Independents, Maillard has been a councilor in the 9th arrondissement of Paris since 2014.[6] After joining La Republique En Marche! he was elected deputy in Paris's 1st constituency during the legislative elections of 2017, one of only four lawmakers elected in the first round.[7]

In parliament, Maillard serves on the Committee on Social Affairs. In addition to his committee assignments, he is a member of the French-German Parliamentary Friendship Group and the French-Israeli Parliamentary Friendship Group.[8] He also chairs a working group on ways to fight antisemitism.[9] In 2018, he joined an informal group of around 50 LREM members in support of strengthening entrepreneurship.[10]

Political positions[edit]

On Maillard's initiative, a majority in the National Assembly agreed in December 2019 on a non-legally binding resolution modeled on the definition of antisemitism set by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA).[11][12]
