My work has taken me all over the world, and today I call Los Angeles home. I was born in Switzerland and pursued a masters in engineering at EPFL in Lausanne, followed by an MBA focused on the management of luxury brands at ESSEC in Paris. Over the past 25 years, I have led some of the most iconic consumer brands; building global presence, investing in culture, and promoting social good. I hold French and American citizenship.

I’ve had the pleasure and privilege to work with Laurent Potdevin in building and training his core team at lululemon. LP is that once-in-a-generation authentic leader who truly walks his talk and can creatively guide an organization to success with a fusion of critical business metrics, heart-based inspiration, and a powerful toolkit of wellness practices. Throughout his career, he has effectively demonstrated his ability to vision, motivate & evolve his employees to their best expression — through his core belief that people & organizations can do good AND do well… that we can make purposeful decisions in which everybody wins… and, that it is possible to manifest your dreams and deepest desires while living a balanced and fulfilling life.
