Situation professionnelle

I have been working in the water industry for 19 years, mainly in profit centers management and international business development for large and complex infrastructure projects delivered as DBs, DBOs and PPPs. At my past and current positions, I have developed great business acumen and an extensive knowledge and understanding of the water industry, its different actors and its regional drivers (in North and West Africa, Russia, North and South America and Middle East). I also gained a valuable experience in corporate/business strategy and in project financing for complex infrastructure PPPs.
