My Job

I have over 25 years of experience in corporate affairs and have regularly worked with several industry sectors including energy and power, aerospace, mobility, financial services, agriculture and food, FMCG, pharmaceutical and IT industries in developing and implementing pan-European public affairs and corporate communications programs.

I have extensive antitrust and competition experience and have supported the communication and regulatory reviews of several high-profile transactions in recent years including the mergers of Lafarge-Holcim, Nokia-Alcatel, AB Inbev – SABMiller, Ahold-Delhaize, Essilor Luxottica, IBM-Red Hat and the proposed Alstom-Siemens merger.

My job changes every year and with every assignment. That’s why I like it.
