What was your last job?

I created my own company in July last year. It was a consultancy firm dedicated to the financial issues of Life Science Companies with a focus on the preparation for an IPO or an M&A operation. I was the CEO of this firm and I had 2 seniors partners. The company is still running but I decided to leave it due to a lack of results. As the CEO, I was involved in the strategy, business development, finance and public relations. It is a very deep and tricky experience to summarize!

What is your previous education?

I was in preparatory class from 2009 to 2011 and then I studied in Grenoble Ecole de Management (France), Master II degree in Corporate finance (2011-2014). Parallel to my first year at Business School, I studied general law at the Pierre Mendès-France University.

Why you wanted to work with UpSlide?

We can call working with UpSlide a fantastic coincidence. I was looking for a job for just 1 week and Antoine sent me an email on Thursday morning! I saw him the day after, and Philippe the next day. Honestly, I chose to work with UpSlide first due to the two bosses (Antoine & Philippe) and second because of the job itself! Everything was super sexy: the state of mind, the management method, the potential of each entity, the mission scope, the team and an office in my favourite area. To become CFO at 25 is an incredible opportunity and a massive challenge!

Interesting fact about yourself?

I have been a sailing instructor for many years, it’s more than just a passion! Water makes me feel peaceful…
