Résumé

Business Developer, Strategist, Advisor and Mentor, I am passionate with Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I have worked for the Private and Public sectors in Western Europe, Norway and the US: I like to open the doors, facilitate contacts and close deals!

As Country Manager and Sales/Marketing Director, I have contributed to the success and setting up of Nordic/European companies (SMEs and startups) in France. And Then as Head of Business Development France and Benelux for SelectUSA, based at the US Embassy in Paris, I have assisted companies from France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, to set up operations in the U.S.

I like to advise companies, especially startups and disruptive SMEs, on their Marketing and Business Development strategies: I am proud to be a Jury member of HEC and Trium NYU/LSE incubators as well as of AmCham/NextGen startups competition.
