Born and raised in France, I have lived most of my working life in Asia and I have been a business executive for more than 30 years.
I have been a partner at McKinsey & Company and at global executive search firm Spencer Stuart where I led the Asia-Pacific Financial Services Practice. I then founded my own leadership advisory firm, which I recently sold to Eric Salmon & Partners.
Besides coaching, I work with clients such as private equity investors, top consulting firms, and family-owned businesses, on critical topics including:
Leadership team composition, organization, and performance
Clients work with me because I connect with them as a peer, offering a safe and non-judgmental space to look deep within and remember their true essence. It is often difficult for accomplished individuals to find a coaching partner who can simultaneously understand what life is like at their level of seniority, yet challenges them to explore a new world of possibilities.
Over the years, I have helped active and retired CEOs, family owners, former government ministers, senior partners of consulting firms, and plenty of successful senior executives with some of their most challenging situations and transitions.
Many of them have joined me on retreats to disconnect, reflect, and give purpose to the next phase of their life.
I hold an MBA from INSEAD and an MSc in Civil Engineering from Ecole Centrale Paris. I am a certified Integral Coach, a certified Organizational Coach, accredited by the International Coach Federation, a certified Yoga Teacher, and I am qualified to use several leading psychometric tools such as Hogan, Predictive Index, and Enneagram among others.
