Managing Partner

Expertise

After completing my professional training in the hospitality sector, I spent some “years of apprenticeship and peregrinations” in the gastronomy and hotel industry before I transitioned to personnel placement some 20 years ago.

In recruiting, I focus on the sectors Industry / Technology / Construction.

A very important aspect of my approach can be summarized as follows: “Listen well and take your vis-à-vis seriously”.
