Chief Executive, ENGIE Services – West & Central Africa , ENGIE

Presentation: Born in Toulon, in the south of France, where I did all my studies until my engineering degree. I started my career in France, in the field of oil and gas, for 4 years. Then, I joined the Bouygues Group in 2000, first in France for telecom deployment, then in 2002, in Africa (Gabon, Mozambique, Morocco, Congo, Ivory Coast...) for nearly 18 years. I was fortunate to alternate assignments of responsibility on large-scale infrastructure projects, overhead power lines and substations for example, and in local subsidiaries as Director or Country Manager. More recently, I worked on large solar photovoltaic power plant projects in the Philippines and Australia as Project Director for almost two years, before returning to Africa, in Côte d'Ivoire as CEO West Africa for Bouygues Energies & Services in 2017. In May 2020, I joined the Africa ENGINEERING BU, in the context we know, as CEO Engie Services Côte d'Ivoire. The short-term objectives are to strengthen the footprint of ENGIE Services through very selective and high value-added solutions. What motivates you? Innovation and business development, to provide solutions adapted to our clients by leading a multicultural team with all the required skills, creating a work atmosphere oriented towards efficiency and profitability. What is your motto? Sufficient does not mean efficient!
