PROFILE

Thanks to my many years of experience in various executive functions at different companies, I have extensive experience in the execution of turnarounds and management of complex projects and ventures.

 

As an entrepreneur, I led for several years the creation and development of a dynamic international start-up (Europe/Africa) in the Fintech sector including a financial platform for underserved populations. 

 

Prior to that, I was CFO and CEO of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), a multinational global company, for more than thirteen years. I played a key role in FIFA's turnaround from over-indebtedness to sustainable profitability. During this time, I also ensured the implementation of a large number of complex projects, particularly in the areas of corporate governance, major events, acquisitions and finance.

 

Before joining FIFA, I worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company in Switzerland, supporting various companies in the implementation of challenging projects.
