Denis Favier

Commanding Officer in chief - GIGN
General Director - Gendarmerie nationale
Val d’Isère 2018

You all know Denis Favier. But often without knowing it. On December 26, 1994, he directed the intervention of the GIGN on the Marseille-Marignane airport, putting an end to the hostage taking of the Air France flight 8969 Algiers-Paris. Denis Favier was then commander of the GIGN (from 1992 to 1997, then from 2007 to 2011), and he was then director general of the National Gendarmerie (from 2013 to 2016). This is probably one of the best men to talk about fear, and how to control it in extreme situations!
