Short profile

As a passionate data & analytics leader, I support companies in the conception and implementation of innovative data strategies. My goal is data democratization through dynamic organizations - such as Data Mesh - as well as innovative data architectures - such as Data Fabric and Data Lakehouse.
With over 20 years of professional experience in various management positions in consulting and user companies, I combine methodological expertise with leadership skills. In addition, I have excellent communication skills in order to convey complex contexts and strategies in a way that is appropriate to the target audience.
