Head in the cloud, hands dirty, customer shoes Tech leader: with a proven 10 years track records at C-level jobs.

Agile believer: while I value processes, tools, roadmap, documentation,... I value people, fast feedback and adaptation more Having worked both for a software editor and IT service companies I have broad experience and enjoy managing a technical department to have the most impact on the result of the organisation. I lead by the example with empathy for my collaborators. I present a clear vision and define ambitious yet realistic objectives. This way I build trust and set my teammates on a track to success. I have a strong background in web, open source and cloud technologies. I'm a firm believer in the agile manifesto and work mostly with Scrum or Kanban methods (only if they are backed by a development team practicing eXtreme Programming) I have an interest in both the technical side of ICT and its social impacts on society and organisations. But first I am a developer.
