Biotech Senior Executive

Born in France, raised across the world (especially in Australia and Africa), I have been in the Pharma/.Biotech industry for 23 years, with 18 years in Oncology/Hematology.

My scientific and business education (MSc & DEA of Physiology, Neuroscience & Neuropharmacology and MBA in Strategic Marketing & Enterprise Management) allowed me to better understand how to manage cross-functional projects in matrix organization. My deep understanding of the oncology/hematology product lifecycle (from discovery to development and commercialization/LCM) and my strong leadership skills acquired along multiple commercial, strategy and senior executive roles makes me a seasoned executive to bring cancer therapy to patients.

In addition to continuously fighting against cancer, my passions in life, besides my family, are playing music in my family rock band (singer, guitar, drums), rock climbing and outdoors sports, fast cars and traveling the world with my wife and kids.
