I’m the CEO of Auction, a fast growing leading Digital Art Marketplace.
Prior, I have been the cofounder and Managing Partner of Copilot Partners, a Corporate Strategy Consulting firm in the Digital Economy, Vice President e-Commerce at AccorHotels, a worldwide travel leader. Before, I really enjoyed working at Microsoft as Director of Marketing & Business Development of MSN and held before, various managing positions in International companies and Start-ups. I have also written a few books on the Digital Economy.

The father of 5 children, I share my life between Paris and Brittany and have a lot of personal interests, including a consuming passion for drawing. Mostly influenced by Belgian and French comics, I travel with my family across our little planet, always bringing with me a tiny watercolor box and a few pens, filling frantically travel sketchbooks unless I draw pastiches of Tintin covers. I have illustrated or participated in a dozen of books and I'm a Fakulty Member at Sketchbook Skool.
