En résumé

I am an experienced IT Project Manager specialized in messaging systems. Exchange is my core skill but I have similar experience in other Microsoft products. I have worked on numerous projects across Europe and the Middle East. These projects have covered situations a various as implementation, migration, downsizing, etc… They have been messaging oriented or pure systems oriented. I am fluent in French and English. During these projects I have managed consultants and employees on-site and on remote sites. Most of the environments I have worked on are high availability or politically sensitive environments, this has taught me to be very cautious and thorough in my work.
