Your bio in your own words ...

I am a visionary CEO and entrepreneur in retail with a track record of driving growth through employee-centric strategies.

With 20+ years’ experience helming global brands such as Boiron, L’Occitane and Repetto, I led a customer-focused approach long before client experience was retail’s latest buzz word. Combining my knowledge of European and North American markets with my ability to create profitable solutions rapidly and cost-effectively, I increased revenues up to 300%.

As a leader galvanized teams of 300+, I proved that prioritizing training and career development for employees was the key to successful customer engagement. Known for my ability to deliver innovative turnaround strategies for brands eager to pivot, I am unafraid to challenge the status quo and thrive in creating pioneering opportunities for retail in times of uncertainty.

I am currently a guest lecturer at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University. I am an MBA graduate from McGill University (Montreal), a French Foreign Trade Advisor and have held board and advisory positions at Mars Ventures, the French Chamber of Commerce and the Alliance Française in Toronto. I am the recipient of France’s Ordre National du Mérite
