Since 2015, I am Key Client Consultant with Euromonitor, where I am acting as clients’ strategic advisor and creating business opportunities with Global Fortune 500 organisations'​ multiple units incl. strategy, marketing, sales, innovation in the beauty & personal care, energy, oil & gas, chemicals and ingredients, retail, food & drinks industries.

I have also been freelancing since 2014 for civil society, private and public sector clients providing evidence-based consulting and advisory services (management & public affairs) to help them be more effective.

From 2006 to 2014, he was Director of Marketing & Business Development for Gallup in Europe, where he covered business strategy and development, marketing and communications, the management of international projects and managed a number of strategic partnerships with leading EU and international institutions, civil society and private sector organisations. Also as Strategic Consultant, he was involved in consulting projects and policy and behavioural economics analysis.

I studied in France, the US and UK and holds a Masters degree in Management from Audencia Nantes School of Management and a postgraduate degree in Contemporary European Studies from Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences-Po) and the University of Bath. I previously worked in the Consumer & Marketing Intelligence department of Philips in Amsterdam and at the French Embassy in Brussels in the Office for Economics & Commercial Affairs. Before Gallup, I was a consultant for a Brussels-based Public Affairs consultancy where I was mainly involved in policy analysis and consulting.

I have an experience of 11+ years working for international consulting firms in international sales, business development and marketing with multicultural teams and clients, 10+ in global market and social research, and 9+ in EU public affairs. I speak French and English fluently, and have notions of German and Italian.

Besides my work I am also passionate about sports, cinema, photography, video games, music, travels, fooding and cooking, disruptive ideas, dystopian literature, social innovation and politics (not necessarily in that order!).
