Hello! I'm Christophe
Currently working as an Interim Manager and close to CEOs, I'm providing my services among various areas including : CFO, Corporate Finance (M&A, sales, fund raising), business and financial planning, companies valuation, crisis management, strategy, restructuration and general & corporate management (Board of Directors, General Meetings…)
In 2020 after more than 15 years of experience where I gained a strong background in Financial Audit (Big Four), Corporate Finance & Interim/General Management, I decided to take on a new challenge with an EXECUTIVE MBA program at SOLVAY BRUSSELS SCHOOL.
This journey (October 2020 – June 2022) gives me the opportunity to broaden my skills with learning and practice in fields like Strategy, Leadership, Global Entrepreneurship, Brand Management, Digital Marketing, Team building, Negotiation Analysis, Project Management and Business Analytics.
All of this with a purpose of moving from Finance positions towards General Management/CEO positions.
Dynamic and well organized I like challenges, getting the things done and leadership.
