In 2014, together with several experienced private equity executives, we started a new company with an innovative proposition. Ixens supports controlling shareholders preserve and maximize the value of their investment in small and mid-size companies, especially in complex situations.
Prior to this, I have driven the creation of an international offshore service company from 2010 to 2013, initially as a Director and then as its CEO from mid 2012 to end 2013.
Through the acquisition, turnaround and merger of 3 independant companies (Gulmar Energy in the UAE, ISS/Andrews Survey in Scotland and Veolia Marine Services in the US), we have created what became a leading provider of subsea inspection, repair, maintenance and light construction services to the global oil and gas industry, with over US$400 million of sales in 2013, and close to 1,000 employees. The group is present and active in the four main regions for offshore Oil and Gas: the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, Africa and Asia Pacific.
Prior to my commitment to Harkand, I worked for 12 years in Private Equity and leveraged finance, at Oaktree Capital Management, focusing on complex special situations / turnaround, CVC Capital Partners and ING. Before my years in private equity, I spent 3 years at the Boston Consulting Group, and 1 year in an internet start-up.
