Founder /CEO at French Digital/ Diune

Startupbootcamp FinTech London Mentor

I am a jack of all trades, hopefully good at some.

I am currently active in digital retail banking, helping startups and developing new propositions for established players.

I am the CEO at Diune, makers of Piktures, the best way to enjoy photos & videos on a smartphone: http://www.diune.com

I have led the development of digital products on mobile, tablet and desktop for both startups and corporate organisations, including Vodafone, Lloyds, and RBS. I have managed products with substantial scale, e.g. Lloyds app had 5M monthly mobile active users.

I have first-hand experience of the challenges relating to digital transformation for large organisations having run transformation programs and shaped the strategy and the organisational setup in which they need to operate. I am currently helping companies in the Financial sector to grasp and respond appropriately to these challenges.

This includes designing omni-channel strategies, leading product teams and shaping innovative value propositions addressing customer needs.

Despite having spent the last 15-odd years in commercial, strategy and marketing roles I am very hands on and make a point of retaining a strong technical grasp. For instance I can still code in objective C.

I am an occasional public speaker and the founder of French Digital; with 3000 members, it’s the leading community for French professionals working in digital in London, Paris, Dubai and Berlin.
