"My work of the past years has focused
on creating value on content through compelling editorial
and innovative business development approaches "
I am currently based in Paris, France - I am the Head of Business Development and Content at HOUSE OF PODCASTS,
where I lead the editorial and commercial strategy.
In fall 2015, I joined AFROSTREAM, the first streaming/OTT platform known as the "Netflix for African and African-American" serving the European + African market. As the Chief Content Officer, Programming and Distribution
I drove Afrostream distribution business forward by implementing major partnerships with telco and partners (FMGC, Market place, Gas station…) across Europe and Africa. I also built the company acquisition and production content offering nearly 20,000 SVOD assets, linear TV and podcasts in multiple language across 40+ countries. During those years I've learn how to move in a startup environment using Agile method and delivered an amazing product experience.
Prior to Afrostream, I was appointed as MY ZEN TV Managing Director (2014). My Zen TV is an international lifestyle TV channel dedicated to wellness available in 80+ countries (25M+ subs - 130+ platforms). I successfully handled the brand relaunch and repositioning. Optimized the P&L and increased revenue by 17% thanks to new market expansion and launch of local version (Russian, Spanish and Turkish). More than that I redeployed the OTT streaming offer.
I've shaped my career in the media during my 14 years at LAGARDERE ACTIVE. As the SVP Global Media Distribution I was responsible for overseeing the Distribution business of a portfolio of 15+ TV channels, pop up channels and non linear services.
At this position I generated a yearly +60M$ turnover with a long history of YOY revenue growth (85% of the TV activies revenue). I played a key role in driving Lagardere pursuit of new growth opportunities including the launch of 13 TV channel from scratch in multiple language over 100 territories and M&A. I've learned how to manage multicultural team and affiliates trought complex international environment.
I hold a Master Degree in Media, Design and Art and earned a Bachelor Degree of Applied Arts from the prestigious French school of Art & Design "Ecole Boulle". I was born in the Caribbean. I spend the majority of my free time: riding horses, discovering art and new interior design, meditating or traveling the world (50+ countries) with family and friends.
I am an advocate for #Inclusion #Diversity #WomenEmpowerment and #Selfcare.
