Alain Ferrandi

CFO in France

I am an entrepreneurial and innovative Executive with 20 years of proven ability to profitably implement and manage corporate strategy for both B2B and B2C multinational organisations within the digital arena. My experience illustrates that I am competent in coaching, managing and developing high-performance teams and staff members while building strategic objectives to reduce costs, identify and reduce risk, improve quality, increase efficiency, and support rapid growth.

For over 13 years, I held various and progressive Executive roles for Vivendi Group, a multi-billion dollar French multinational mass media, games, music and telecommunications group. As a member of this organisation, I contributed to the success of various business ventures/members within the group and held roles such as Joint Chief Operations Officer (COO), Chief Financial Officer, Executive Vice President (EVP), and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). My experience and successes in these roles proves my ability to develop and lead business processes, growth, subsidiaries, reorganisation, acquisitions, and exit strategies within highly reactive markets.

Highlights of my success include:
♦ Conducting international negotiations on over 100 major contracts.
♦ Managing budgets in excess of €30m and generating €100m in revenues.
♦ Accountability for full profit and loss, delivering a total of €2million EBITDA.
♦ Achieved a 100% pass quality on all products
♦ Leading the due diligence and negotiation for a successful €11m acquisition.

Currently, I am assisting a start-up IT organisation as a Non-Executive Director while also editing and authoring my own Digital Management Blog to provide information about various aspects of the digital marketplace.

In addition, I am seeking new Executive level opportunities that fit my expertise in a challenging and rewarding environment within the digital arena or within other sectors.
