Fondateurs Soprodim

Côte d'Azur Invest (formerly Soprodim France), was created in 2017 by Salvatore Charles to meet the needs of clients in Europe in terms of real estate transactions, as an extension of the activities of Soprodim S.A.M.

The family Sirna offer you more than 70 years of cumulative experience in all aspects of property development and real estate investment in particular on the French Riviera.

Salvatore Charles graduated with a Master's degree in Business Law from Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University and began his banking career in the real estate development finance department on the Côte d'Azur within Swiss Bank Corporation (SBC which became UBS ).

After taking part in the SBC Management Training Program in New York, he helped set up its finance department for industrial and mining projects. He then obtains a Master of Business Administration from the prestigious INSEAD, MBA ranked many times number 1 worldwide by the Financial Times, and joins the department of commercial banking and wealth management of Banque Paribas.
