The expert in a few words....

I enjoy autonomously implementing segmentation and reorganization strategies to significantly improve the profitability and balance sheet of the organizations I work with. I use proven methodologies to achieve these results, taking the teams with me. I am happy to work on a time-sharing basis within small organisations.

I have often been involved in growth management or critical contingencies, ideally in the post acquisition integration phase (PMI).

I have a lot of experience in the BtoB business with a strong technical orientation.
