The expert in a few words....

I like to implement segmentation and reorganization strategies autonomously to significantly improve the profitability and balance sheet of the structures where I work. I use proven methodologies to achieve these results, taking the teams on board with me. I am happy to work on a part-time basis within small structures.

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 BtoB professions with a strong technical orientation.

His specific skills

  • Strategy: review of the strategy of group subsidiaries at the time of integration. Review of PMI's cleantech strategy. Competitive and positioning studies, resegmentation, value analysis. Deployment of PMT.
  • Management: teams of 15 to 75 people at all levels. Hierarchical and transversal management (in project management). Reporting to International Boards
