I first joined Schneider Electric in 1997 focusing on motor control within R&D as part of the variable speed drives activity, which became a joint venture with Toshiba in 2000 named Schneider Toshiba Inverter. In 2012, I joined the company corporate as the Strategy and Innovation Platforms VP dealing with cross-business technology platforms in the domain of digital services, supervisory control and embedded control. Today, I am Chief Technology Officer for Industry business driving automation system architecture, cyber-security and automation digital transformation (Industrial Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, etc.). In 2015 I became a Board member of ODVA, an international association comprised of members from the world's leading automation companies. I enjoy traveling, especially visiting historical sites and architectures, along with wine tasting and walking.
