Partner, Co-Founder Europe
Switzerland, France, Canada
“I specialize in accelerating outcomes, driving sustainable growth and value-creation across numerous businesses. To quote Wayne Gretzky, I skate where the puck is going to be, not where it has been. My focus is access to markets & funding, venture advisory, interim management, M&A and restructuring.
I’ve been the client as a CIO & COO, delivering innovative solutions to 60,000 accountants across the globe. I’ve been the vendor as a senior executive in Telecoms. I’ve incubated start-ups and scale ups to deliver impactful solutions. Combining an education in computer science, architecture and finance; and my broad commercial experience, I am apt to develop strategies and plans of execution, which span the organization. I champion the client’s customer throughout the value chain and operationalize strategy to bridge gaps in results and deliver measurable business outcomes.”
Be it with start-ups, scale-ups and mature businesses, Marc has been focused on accelerating outcomes and delivering measurable results. His reputation is that of a creative problem solver, putting into play solutions, which notably, can be sustained by the teams on whom the organization will depend, long after Marc’s engagement is over.
Marc’s passion is helping companies re-focus on customers as foundational to a great strategy – to then accelerate sustainable growth.
I believe the customer is the arbiter and a natural linkage point between all business units of a company. I believe in helping customers solve problems of value to them, not selling them products of value to me.
