François GALAINE


En résumé

From a financial background with client-oriented experiences, I like to take challenges that put me out of my confort zone. I constantly think of how to improve offers to meet clients demand.

Within 10 years in sales & marketing positions, I was able to create unique offers, sign +500 deals (from 1 k€ to 20 M€ each) with various clients (including top-listed companies). I took early management positions and am always very curious about new trends & opportunities in a wide range of sectors (mostly Energy, Environment and Sofwares).

Previously director in a company I joined at early stage, I was focusing on commercial deals and project management with top tier clients in the energy sector. Since, I founded a video game studio and joined a startup selling B2B gamification sofwares.

My past experiences built my core competencies: client-focused behavior, projects development, entrepreneurship and management.

Constantly opened to new challenges and opportunities, I am eager to develop new products and services with inspiring people in France and South Korea.
