About Me

An accomplished senior executive, I have spent over two decades immersed in the tech-enabled services sector scaling global businesses and navigating them through complex transitions to unlock value and deliver growth.

Throughout my career, I’ve led diverse teams and been responsible for nearly every corporate function, including sales, marketing, operations, supply, product, and HR. I’ve worked with businesses of all sizes, ranging from agile teams of 20 FTE/2M€ in revenue to large enterprises with over 10,000 employees and revenues of 2B€. I have operated successfully under different ownership contexts, from founder-led startups to private equity scaleups to publicly listed companies.

An integral part of my professional journey includes playing key roles in two successful exits. I have buy-side and sell-side M&A expertise in all deal phases, from building valuation justifications, business cases, and investor presentations to negotiation, due diligence, and post-deal integration and synergy delivery.

A global citizen with American roots, I’ve made France my home and frequently spend time in the UK. My career has taken me around the world, providing me with invaluable insights and experience building and running successful multinational businesses. I am truly passionate about embracing diverse perspectives and cross-cultural collaboration to drive organizational excellence.

As a committed and authentic leader, I take great pride in cultivating resilient, high-performing teams. My leadership style fosters a fulfilling and accountable work culture where team members thrive, finding professional growth and satisfaction while driving meaningful business results.

Outside of work, I pursue various interests. Besides spending time with friends and family, I hold the role of elected Chair of the Manchester United Supporters Trust, the largest independent fan organisation in the UK. I also serve as a judge for the Salon du Fromage in Paris and enjoy singing as a creative outlet.
