Personal pitch

As a French executive with an extensive international experience through travelling (in EMEIA, APAC), living overseas (6 years in the UK, 3 years in Germany, 1 year in Spain and 2 years in South East Asia) and a proven history of success in building corporate value, the breadth of my experience covers a wide range of functions, thereby providing me with insights into the total operation of a business. Moving from core competencies in product marketing and sales, regional and global business development, I have successful transitioned into several general management roles with strategic planning, operation and staffing responsibilities. My technical knowledge and experience in hydraulic fluids and electro mechanical areas combined with solid competences in using multiple sales channels, ranging from project sales, strategic accounts, OEMs to industrial and professional distributors, and service centers would serve as an asset to sustain your client projected goals and objectives. Entrepreneurial, open-minded, determined, assertive, and competitive, I look forward to meeting with you.
