En résumé

Since 1989, I work in the Defence and Space industry in Middle East, Asia and Europe areas. My international experiences cover promotion, representative’s management, project team management and contracts negotiation. I like to contribute in long-term partnership building through professional confidence.
I am passionate in technologies. My personal ability to understand operational need and translate it into technical requirements is appreciated. I use my experience to analyse technical and commercial issues in order to build solution. This double competence provides me the global picture to imagine new products and services.
