I grew up in Paris where I live today. I am the CEO & Partner of Temaris et Associés, an investment vehicle based in Paris.

I enjoy my role with White Star for the opportunity to work with a great team and portfolio companies in the tech world.

I am graduate of the Institut d’Etudes politiques de Paris and hold a Master’s degree in law from the University of Paris Assas. I have been with the Artémis group for over 25 years working numerous M&A transactions covering a wide range of industries, including luxury goods, insurance, real estate, construction, consumer goods and retail. During my time with Artémis I have served on a wide range of boards including Christie’s Auction House; Château Latour, a high-end vineyard; Le Ponant, a luxury cruise line; Le Point magazine, Aoba, a Japanese life insurance company; New California Life Holding, a life insurance company in California; and Tawa, an English insurance company.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling across the world, sport and art globally speaking.
