Manager of ExperTeam, Catalyst for ideas…
an engineer trained at Supélec and a graduate of Imperial College London in 2005, manager of a call centre at Orange France, then deputy manager of Orange Healthcare (the health division of the Orange Group).
Since I joined ExperTeam, I have hugely enjoyed defining the strategy, bringing it to life and making it work with our clients. All this is possible because we recruit and surround ourselves with dedicated, talented individuals, eager to discover new horizons and to be able to do their jobs in fascinating contexts (user environment, Internet of Things, data analytics or the cloud).
Other than my professional activity, my priority is to spend time with my family and children! I am also a sports fan and I particularly enjoy sailing, skiing, golf and swimming. I am also a volunteer for the association Energie Jeunes. Lastly, I always like to keep myself up-to-date with the latest developments in the Internet of Things, e-health, roaming and entrepreneurship.
Projects and proposals manager, Innovation genius…
Manager of project teams and facilities management. I manage both the pre-sales teams and those in charge of the ExperTeam areas of expertise, to develop the company and satisfy our clients.
Throughout my career entirely dedicated to the world of IT at software publishers, distributors and facilities managers, I have occupied various positions, both technical and commercial: Pre-sales engineer, product development manager, service centre manager, commercial manager, proposals manager, etc.
It is above all the wealth of this experience and my knowledge of the sector that I am now devoting to the development of ExperTeam.
Raynald’s hidden talents: I like doing DIY, whether it involves handling a builders trowel, a blowtorch or a paintbrush, I always find new projects. Apart from that, the mountains and their open spaces have always inspired me. There is nothing better for keeping my feet on the ground and reviving my energy!
Manager of the Banking & Insurance branch, Business Explorer…
After having worked in IT services companies in diverse and varied fields, I joined ExperTeam in June 2013 as branch manager in order to develop the Banking/Insurance/Finance side of things. It is my entrepreneurial spirit and my interest in this sector which drove me to join ExperTeam.
My role within the company consists of creating commercial momentum. This involves prospecting, writing proposals and negotiation, as well as the management of sales engineers and consultants and the recruitment of new staff.
The real strength of ExperTeam is that it is a people-centred organisation integrated into a large group. This characteristic is an advantage for our big-account clients, who benefit from the stability of our organisation and the agility of a start-up type company. The human element is at the centre of the system and it is important for us to stay close to our consultants. The result is convincing: 50% of our recruitments this year are from cooptation!
Laurie’s interests: A martial arts enthusiasts, I have been practising Taekwondo for many years. I am a black belt 4th Dan and I also have a diploma as a federal instructor. This regular practice helps me find a balance in my daily life. However, when I’m on holiday, I like spending long hours on the beach or beside the pool; I like relaxing. I really need these kinds of breaks to recharge my batteries!
Manager of the Industries & Services branch, Business adventurer…
Once I graduated from the ISC (Institut Supérieur de Commerce), I took my first steps in a headhunting firm before moving towards the IT sector.
I was a sales executive for over 10 years, before becoming sales manager, firstly in the field of IT training and then in one of the largest French digital services companies.
I joined ExperTeam as manager of the Industries & Services branch at the beginning of 2015, where I became responsible for commercial development and supporting a team of 60 people. I also work at the strategic level, taking part in cross-company projects and participating in the optimisation of our service offers.
ExperTeam’s new strategy represents a genuine entrepreneurial challenge for this company, which is primarily focused on proximity between clients and employees and on the human side, which is what attracted me to this organisation. We put a lot of emphasis on the research for talent, while constantly maintaining an objective of innovation.
Behind-the-scenes with Richard: I love sport in general, but particularly racket sports (badminton and tennis), which I devote myself to during my spare time. I find all of the values that I am proud to uphold every day in these sports: sharing, challenge, tactics, exceeding expectations…
