About Me


About Me
As CEO of PH Global Advisor, I am a recognized Expert Risk Consultant with over 20 years of experience within industry and insurance sectors, including 12 years as C.R.O. with a subsidiary of GE Capital involved in Asset management, where I gained significant experience in Enterprise and Strategic Risk Management, managing a team of 30 people worldwide.
I have extensive experience via my consultancy, in a wide range of Risk functions such as underwriting, collections, and compliance but also in Strategy, Business Development, and Macro analysis. Exceptional ability to work in the front line as a key support to senior decision makers. I interacted and supported a salesforce in order to offer products that are tailor-made to the customers and actively participated in multi million deals, as a complement external effort.
I have an MBA from Sciences Po (IEP), Paris, a Masters in econometrics from ULP Strasbourg. I completed a Certificate of International Trade (NYU, USA) and a Certificate of Public Relations (McGill, Canada).
