Bonjour, Buongiorno,

Originally from France I studied material engineering in France - DUT Sciences et Génie des Matériaux and Ecole des Mines d’Alès -. I have always been fascinated by discovering other cultures, that’s why I decided to work abroad for many years. I had the chance to work in Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and the United States, including many business trips in Japan, China and Taïwan.

As an high-level triathlete I started my career in the sports industry at arena (swimwear products) as a product manager for the swimming goggles. I loved it! I worked on the development of new products, I traveled to visit the suppliers, conducted test on professional athletes, worked with the marketing team, etc.

Willing to develop my business acumen, I decided to accept an intrapreneurship challenging project. Based in the United States I worked for a French company as a business developer to start the business almost from scratch.

The Global MBA at ESSEC will help me to jump into a higher position, most likely in the sport industry, thanks to a combination of great classes, networking events and connections within the cohort.

I’m very open-minded and willing to answer all your questions! Please feel free to reach out to me in English, French or Italian!

A bientôt :)
