Commitment, cooperation and ambition
in terms of international solidarity
After time spent working in sub-Saharan Africa, through the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ludovic Donnadieu, a graduate in accounting and development economics, joined forces with international audit firms and created closer ties with the French Development Agency in the microfinance sector.
Deeply committed and aware of the specific needs of the international solidarity sector in the financial and legal fields, Ludovic Donnadieu decided to fully devote himself to it by establishing a dedicated audit and consulting firm.
In 2008, Ludovic Donnadieu met René Ricol, director and co-founder of Ricol Lasteyrie, a financial and strategic expertise firm, and a leading figure in the national and international accounting profession.
Driven by the desire to establish a firm dedicated to the international solidarity sector, in keeping with his values and convictions, René Ricol decided to commit Ricol Lasteyrie to the upcoming firm. Thus Donnadieu & Associates was born.
René Ricol played a key role in the development of Donnadieu & Associés until 2016. Today he is an honorary member.
Ten years after its creation, Donnadieu & Associés now supports a growing number of solidarity partners (NGOs, foundations and funding bodies) both in France and internationally, which have varied profiles, vocations and nationalities.
Today, the firm's ambition is to increase the independence of solidarity partners in southern, by means of a skills transfer, and the creation of an international network of local legal and financial experts, providing services at a local level.
