I am a CEO and business leader in the exhibition and media industry. Nearly 30 years ago, I joined the industry and immediately fell in love with the passion, the excitement, and the people in events. I am proud to have led many businesses and teams globally, launching products, building partnerships and in-region businesses, while delivering strong profits through organic growth and acquisitions. Throughout my career, I have strived to embrace change, creating more effective and innovative ways to bring people together. It is my goal to build teams and processes that thrive from disruption and change and propel my teams and events, and the overall industry, forward. I have lived and worked in France, England, the Netherlands, and the United States, and have run businesses and led events all over the world. My favourite way to spend free time is at home with my wife and daughter. I like to watch and play football and rugby, and I go to see live music any chance I get.
