I contribute to the design and implementation of two ambitious and strategic projects for the future of my company. Those projects are really exciting and diverse! One is focused on regenerative economy and inclusive mobility and the other one on smart mobility, software, AI and specialized electronics. In my day-to-day work I bring my vision, convictions and expertise, cooperating with an extremely rich Open Innovation Ecosystem involving multiple stakeholders (internal, large companies, SMEs, start-ups, laboratories, universities, public authorities...). It’s fabulous and really rewarding!
During my 20-year career within the same Group, I've had the chance to work in almost 10 different jobs! From Lobbying, Public Affairs to Internal Consulting, HR, Communications and Strategy… a fantastic journey, which has allowed me to grow and develop constantly in contact with my peers and managers.
