As CFO, I lead the finance teams that manage the financial performance of ENGIE Impact across a global and highly dynamic environment. My ambition is to increase awareness of the importance of finance in the sustainability transformation, and the imperative of cross-collaboration to align finance activities to corporate sustainability goals.

In what way do you and the teams you lead further ENGIE Impact’s mission to accelerate sustainable transformation?

Our finance teams support the company’s mission by developing innovative business models and competitive client solutions while overseeing our investment in technology, talent and new markets. Our focus is on linking sustainability with finance, in particular by focusing on innovative, tailor-made business models such as financing solutions “as a service.” Finance is critical to enabling sustainable outcomes.

In 2020 I joined the UN Global Compact CFO Taskforce for the SDGs, which supports companies in the transition to sustainable development as they leverage corporate finance toward the realization of SDGs, or sustainable development goals. This task force of CFOs will share ideas, develop new concepts and frameworks, and provide recommendations to unlock private capital and create a market to mainstream SDG investments.

What does success at ENGIE Impact look like?

Success will be quickly developing and implementing at scale the right regional and global solutions that will help our clients accelerate their sustainability transformation.

How did your background prepare you for this role at ENGIE Impact?

I’ve built my experience in the corporate finance industry and global organizations over more than 15 years, which gave me the opportunity to tackle global challenges and experience living in many countries.

  • I began my time with ENGIE Group in 2008, serving as Financial Advisor for more than five years before serving as Deputy CFO for ENGIE UK. In 2016 I was appointed CFO of ENGIE Insight.
  • Prior to ENGIE, I was with Carrefour Asia Holding and Carrefour China as the retail giant expanded into China. In Hong Kong as Financial Controller and M&A Analyst and then Business Controller and Pricing Manager in Shanghai City.

What do you like to do when you’re not in the office?

In my free time I enjoy running and reading about the future.
