Having worked 15 years as an enterprise IT specialist, currently managing the IT infrastructure of a 400-users company, I look forward to leveraging my experience: IT Manager or Infrastructure Manager, I implement, with my team, the innovative and ambitious projects of the company.

I am looking for a humanly sized structure, leaving room for initiatives and responsibility, encouraging results. Dynamic, open, this structure favours communication and meritocracy.

Professional experience

From 1996

McKinsey & Company, Inc. (consulting)

IT Infrastructure manager

Supporting 300 high-level consultants, the IT Department’s values are: service quality, availability, proactivity.

With the help of two engineers, in line with the Firm’s IT Department, I am responsible for the availability and evolution of the Paris Office IT Infrastructure (local and metropolitan area network, network services, application, file and print servers, data backups, cabling, telecommunications.)

My responsibilities:

ü  budget definition and enforcement (3,5 M€)

ü  IT Dept. members’ evaluations, definition of objectives

ü  negotiation of service & telecom contracts (20% savings on telecommunications in 2002)

ü  hiring of new collaborators

ü  technology watch

Recent missions:

ü  user helpdesk organisation (tracking database, outsourcing)

ü  LAN moved from concentrated to switched (average response time of networked applications divided by two, increased security)

ü  VPN services to users, allowing remote working conditions comparable to working in the office

ü  hardware maintenance contract negotiation (4 hours back to working condition, cost reduction, penalties, performance indicators)

ü  implementation of fax and SMS servers (time to fax divided by five)

ü  complete 24x7 infrastructure monitoring and alerts, allowing capacity planning and immediate reaction in case of a problem

ü  PalmPilot-to-Notes remote synchronisation, allowing real-time agenda sharing between assistant and on-the-move consultants

ü  complete infrastructure deployment in a new building (cabling, server room, telecom links, power supply, servers...)

ü  intranet services deployment


MIND (Recruitment consulting)

Project manager

Assisted by a team of developers, I am in charge of developing the software environment of the company: this software handles the complete management of a 400,000-persons database, from sending the information-gathering form to pre-selecting candidates.

The heart of the system, the “Sélecteur”, enables the user to pre-select candidates using several filters, among a database of 400,000, in a matter of seconds. This pre-selection tool gave our consultants an edge in solving our clients’ requests in the shortest possible time.


Bouygues (Construction)

Senior IT Specialist

I am the interface between the IT Department headquarters, in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, and the users based at the Clamart location.

After having audited the IT situation in Clamart, I implemented pragmatic solutions meeting both the users’ needs and the policies of the IT Department: powerful workstations for AutoCAD users, printing solutions in line with activities, document classification system.


National Service
Paratroopers Military Preparation dept. at the 1ère Région Militaire headquarters

Development of a software application to track the Paratroopers Military Preparation, using the xBase language.


HLP Informatique (computer hardware importation)

Test and validation of computer hardware from Taiwan, in order to eventually import them in France (PC-compatibles, network devices, computer peripherals...)

Development of specific applications at customers’ requests, or for internal usage: benchmark programs, electronic Christmas card.
