A French citizen, Laurent grew up in Paris, but he has also worked throughout France, in Australia, the United States, and he and his family now call London home. A keen tennis player in younger days, Laurent remains an ardent fan of the sport. Growing up Laurent thought he would be an Orchestra Conductor, and in many ways that is the role he has evolved to in business today.

Laurent is responsible for all our existing Modaxo businesses in Europe and the United Kingdom including Binary, Holmedal, Imperial, Malmator, PLANit, Signature Rail, Systemtechnik, Taranto, and Trapeze (UK and Europe). He will also play a key role in helping us identify and engage with like-minded businesses in the sector who are looking to join the Modaxo family.
