The major projects of his career

Already very present in the arena in the media (which is legitimate when one runs a company of which more than two-thirds of the shares are floating : it must capture the interest and sometimes to reassure the stock markets), in march 2017, Alain Dinin has opened a blog. “When one is president of Nexity, open a blog, in the period of electoral campaign, aimed to a selected audience, concerned and informed on the issues of town planning, of housing, of living together is a initiative sense,” he explained from the outset.


In February 2017, in Paris-Match, the leader touted the results of Nexity : “Our results are exceptional and long-lasting in the fifty-odd professions that we operate in. We recorded 18 890 bookings in the new residential, or 35% increase in volume compared to 2015 and a market share that reached 12.7 percent. We have erased the crisis. Our backlog reached a historic level at € 4 billion, representing 19 months of activity, and allows us to estimate our results over two years from financial markets, that is, 300 million in 2017 and $ 325 million in 2018. The dividend increases of 2.20 euros in may 2016 at 2.40 euros for may 2017. “After the reorganization of the governance, to a” organization by client, together with the organization by business area ” (press release group), Nexity is also a lot to digital.

But Alain Dinin also seeks the opportunity of the olympic games 2024 (on condition that the price of land does not fly away) and don’t forget an essential fact, the demographic growth, which leads to de facto increasing needs in term of housing. But the CEO of Nexity warns : “If you look at 15 years old, it will be necessary to produce between 350 000 and 400 000 dwellings each year. (And) the subject of the type of accommodation and services adapted to the new morphology of the cells family is essential, ” he says in taken in June 2017. And note again the address of the new majority : “we necessarily need to ask other questions without simply cutting the housing tax, or to try to increase the number of building permits, what to do, of course. It is also necessary to ask the question of the type and amount of taxation. Must we accept without a word to say that the State collects $ 25 billion in revenue each year on the backs of the taxpayers so that they can become tenants or owners ? ”


This is not a coincidence that on his blog, he appears at the end as ” an actor hired to defend the place and the role of housing in the economy that has started as early as 2006, a charter to promote access to housing for first-time buyers and that is very invested as an officer of Nexity, and citizens on the issues of the city, living together and innovation at the service of a city more harmonious. ”
