After getting a Master degree in Material Sciences from the University of Lyon and a Mechanical Engineering degree from the Ecole CENTRALE de Lyon, France, she first worked on feasibility study, prototype creation, test and repairs of Aircraft parts (mainly composite parts). Then, joining Airbus, she got an extensive knowledge of international and Aerospace Business working with all Airbus partners and many Airbus customers on different projects to make sure that each offered solution would fit the customer needs and requirements. She played a role of consultant in the choice and audit of some worldwide official repair stations and assisted different Airbus customers on site. Then, as the Structural Repair Manual (SRM) Group Manager, she overlooked the certification of repairs, modifications and enhancements of structural components with official authorities (DGAC) and managed a multi-million dollar project on harmonization of methodologies and processes between Airbus partners.
She then joined Dassault Systemes as the strategic account Manager for Bombardier Aerospace, which at that time, was one of the most advanced as far as high tech, (use of virtual prototype, 3D product design, Manufacturing and data management). She not only managed the Business relationship with Bombardier, but as well the implementation of Dassault Systemes products. She organized the first Fly Through presentation in a 3D Aircraft Digital Mock Up and emphasized the need of Virtual Reality especially for pre-sales customer experience. She then moved to the Los Angeles area and, as the Aerospace Business Development Manager for Dassault Systemes of America, worked on defining new strategic solutions using all Dassault Systemes products within the global Aerospace Market, which, at that time was one of the main focus area for Dassault Systemes. She developed, marketed new innovative solutions and helped many OEMs and suppliers implement them for further profitability. She emphasized the need of 3D and digital data use at all levels for enhanced performance within the Airline industry. She worked on projects for Space and Satellites and assisted teams, within Dassault Systemes, working with other industries.
She got a very extensive knowledge of all industries through her current work and past experiences. She also got a very good specific knowledge of environment and link between environment and the future of industries and countries. Being completely independent, she can provide a full assessment with complete integrity.
