I’m a senior Marketing and Creative professional with extensive experience and expertise in leading global Marketing and Creative teams and successfully directing consumer brands through transformation to more meaningfully connect and engage with customers, drive brand loyalty and increase profitability.

As the son of an anthropologist, I grew up in an intellectual, but applied sciences environment. And, throughout my education and professional experience I’ve drawn on that thinking, driving a culture and approach to work that is both insightful, intuitive and creative while also championing structured, data-driven decision making from the process and from my teams.

On the one hand, a results-driven, ideal-state thinker with a clear vision and skill for combining insights, analytics and structured storytelling to drive awareness, engagement, loyalty, repeat purchase and ROI. And, in parallel, passionate about the creative process that sparks imaginations and emotions in sync with the new technologies that bring us closer together and better aligns human behaviours with brands to craft personal and personalised experiences.

This is why I like to say that my style is one of Art and Science in harmony.

I’m eager to bring this thinking, experience and talent to a global organisation that values this type of parallel thinking in a leader.

I have a Bachelor of Arts from Northwestern University in French Studies & International Relations, an MBA from the University of Arizona and a Master of International Management, magna cum laude, from the American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird).

I am an American Citizen and have verified EU Blue Card Work Visa status as well as a current French Residency / Entrepreneur Visa. I am fluent in English and French.

I am globally mobile without restriction.
