Innate Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company discovering and developing first-in-class therapeutic antibodies for the treatment of cancer and inflammatory diseases. The Company has 4 clinical-stage programs, including 3 checkpoint inhibitors developed in the booming field of immuno-oncology. Its innovative approach has translated into major alliances with leaders in the biopharmaceutical industry such as Novo Nordisk A/S, Bristol-Myers Squibb and AstraZeneca. With this latter partner, Hervé has closed the most important deal ever signed by a French biotech in this area: a co-development and commercialization agreement including cash payments of up to US $1.275 billion as well as double digit royalties on sales.

Beginning in 1998, Hervé was the director of a business unit of the company with 65 employees, with annual sales of 30 million U.S. dollars.
