My mentoring is tuned to your challenges, helping you to adapt quickly to your new environment, meet the expectations of your superiors, and take on your new role efficiently and effectively.

The difficulties of taking up a CFO position for the first time

Young CFOs who have just been appointed in international group subsidiaries, or promoted locally, often find themselves alone, half way round the world, with operational issues, new staff to manage, and priorities to juggle.

To take on the new role successfully, you need to combine technical and managerial skills, adapt to a new environment, boost your visibility and communicate effectively with your superiors and your staff.

My dual expertise, the solution for a successful take-up

Technical expertise

Graduate in Corporate Finance and Private Law, holder of an MBA from HEC, I have 15 years' experience as country CFO.  My operational and structured approach allows me to effectively assess and structure short and medium term challenges. I help newly promoted CFOs to settle smoothly into their new position. 

Managerial excellence

Through 25 years of experience in Financial Departments of large groups in France and abroad, at head office and in subsidiaries, I have gained expertise in managing multicultural teams. I help CFOs to build their network, to find their persons of confidence, as they work in tandem with their Managing Director.
