Biographie

I was born on January 2nd 1978 in Paris and raised in the suburb of Paris in a small town called Villennes sur Seine.

After my A level obtained in 1997 with special emphasis on Economics and Maths in St Germain en Laye, I pursued my studies in a leading French Graduate Business School in Paris called ESCE specialized in International Trade.
ESCE is characterized by its very open attitude to the business world and offers each of its students a customized curriculum abroad based on their international preferences and their professional objectives.

During this High education period, I studied in two foreign universities exchanges as Erasmus student: one semester as a second year student at the University of Central England in Birmingham and one semester as a fourth year student in the faculty of administration at Sherbrooke University in Canada.

I have been trained to the work world experience yielded by two practical internships and the knowledge gleaned from researching and writing theses:
As a first year student, I did an introductory internship for the company MTU Turbomeca Rolls-Royce GmbH in Marketing Department for three months in Munich (Germany). This company is a Joint Venture in charge of the organization of the Motor MTR 390, only used in military sector; this motor equips the helicopter called Tiger. Assistant of the International Marketing Director, my mission was to help to set up a product database and processed orders.
As a third year student, I did a practical internship for the company Sasa-Industrie, the world leading producer of commercial baking trays, in commercial department in the subsidiary in Francfort (Germany). Assistant of the CEO, I used to prepare presentation for the sales force, conduct mailing to potential customers and organize and co-ordinate shipment of customers orders.
This same year, I developed with colleagues, as team building project, an export mission for the company Algor-Apis Technology in Paris. This mission consisted in the settings of a quantitative and qualitative survey in order to sell refrigerators to communities in China.
During my last year of studies, I elaborated a memorandum for the company Domainoo specialized in sales of Domain name in Paris-France. Title of this memorandum: “The future perspective of the domain name market”.

After all those adventures, the time came to begin my career.
I began in 2001 as Area manager at Deveaux SA, a French leading company specialized in Textile manufacturing quote on the Euronext stock exchange. My function was to co-ordinate the sales force with the production and to develop the business in these areas by finding new agents. The turnover of this area was € 8 millions.
After one year working for the company Deveaux SA in Lyon, I decided for personal reasons to look for a new job in Paris and started working for the French leading company in costume jewellery, Agatha Paris as export manager. I was reporting directly to the chairman of Agatha, Mr Quiniou and managing directly a team of 8 colleagues.
My missions were:
• Management and animation of the 120 points of sale (POS) abroad located in 20 different countries. Agatha’s jewels are distributed through mono-brand stores and through major international department stores such as Galerie Lafayette, Le printemps, le Bon Marche in Paris, El Corte Ingles in Spain, Lotte in Korea etc. The turnover of the export department was around € 30 millions in 2006.
• Organization of seminars for our distributors aim at showing them the new collection, marketing materials and placing orders.
• Definition and validation for each market of budgets and objectives.
• Organization and co-ordination of the distribution of goods to each market.
• Development of the business by opening new POS owned by the holding Agatha and by opening new POS in new territories through franchisee system.
These 5 years experiences for Agatha ended in November 2007. I decided to quit the company in order to look for new opportunities and involve myself in a new challenging project.

My personal interests are focused on sport and cars. Last actions I did, were to participate to the race “20 km de Paris” in 2006 & 2007 (last time: 1H40mn). I am currently an active member in a racing car team in the French championship VHC for historic cars.
