'My 18 years' work experience united innovative technologies and investment, leveraging my engineering background. My first investments in biogas and hydrogen technologies started from 2010, and I spent the past seven years in charge of hydrogen energy investments and asset management at Air Liquide. There and in roles at Lazard, UBS, and Barclays, I've closed more than 50 transactions that cover a spectrum from M&A to venture capital and infrastructure financing. Hy24 is the ideal place for me to feed my passion for innovative markets and exercise the skills I've gained.'
