Patrick Saussay, CEO


Background briefing
The company was launched in 2012 by CEO Patrick Saussay and Christopher Ryan.

Main services
The wellness market is moving from an exclusive leisure activity to a global lifestyle concern generating business opportunities, concept enhancements and profitability challenges. To support our partners on this path, GPSA services are mainly:
• Business strategy & planning
• Brand & concept development
• Spa consulting
• Project management
• Spa management support
We focus as much on profitability as we do on customer experience, in the definition of global wellness services. Daily wellness is a trend we support. We define personalised services, integrating health prevention and all experiences that enhance the sustainability of one’s wellbeing.
From strategy and concept definition to go-live support, we deliver project services, including business plans, treatment menus and protocols, product brand selection and team training. To provide a memorable wellness experience, we consider all senses, with a constant focus on the balance between atmosphere, offering and resources.
Our experience of project development, spa management and investors’ focus helps us to create compelling and differentiating concepts aligned with a business strategy, not ‘nice-but-empty’ places.

Additional services
GPSA gets involved with the definition of a spa or product concept before giving international development support. We enhance brands, define the roll-out strategy and represent exclusive brands in prospecting and new projects assessment. We also undertake financial, operating and positioning reviews of existing spas, and support the transition from traditional spas to global wellness services.

USPs
Advising on international spa projects has equipped the company with a wide knowledge of what wellness means in different cultures. Saussay has 25 years’ experience – mainly with the ‘big-five consulting firms’ – and was involved in the change process of organisations such as the French Healthcare Ministry, before transferring this expertise to wellness.
GSPA’s Christine Masson has 25 years experience in the industry, while the company’s international network enables us to advise on strategy, economics, wellness and development, to reach sustainable solutions.

How many spas do you supply?
With 24 projects completed and five in progress, GPSA works in France, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, South Korea, GCC countries and Vietnam. The company supports evianSPA developments worldwide, and the transformation of a ski resort into a wellness destination.

What the clients say
“Since his decisive support in creating the evianSPA concept, strategy and business model, Patrick continuously demonstrates his expertise and dedication to our success.
"From the identification and negotiation of iconic projects, to each step of the design, implementation and go-live process, he secures our brand identity, positioning and quality of execution. He’s also overseeing evianSPA activity with the support of licensees.”
Laurent Sacchi, Executive VP, Danone - Chairman, Evian

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Patrick on international business development projects. I’ve been able to acknowledge his listening and analytical skills, as well as his ability to find the most relevant creative solutions to expressed challenges. Patrick is among these very rare individuals with whom you really want to work with effectively, efficiently and in all confidence.”
Sofiane Djadri, CEO, Charme d’Orient
