Actually Director of the Fiber Network, Lighting and Connect Street furnitures and the Smart Metering at the Services Industriels de Genève, this place me at the center of the Smart Cities infrastructures. After the getting my engineering degree, in 1983, I’ve spent 6 years in research departments to create material and software platforms in real-time environments of telecommunications. To get out of the laboratory I spent 2 years at Wang as telecommunication consultant to help successfully the sales force to sell integrated solutions of IT and telecommunication. Hired as Telecommunication Consultant by AT&T; those 4 years has been the transition from the consulting to the direct sales and the management of people. I led with success a group focused in the sale of telecommunication solution, from the cabling system to the local network. Based on my reputation I was hired by Cisco Systems to take care and develop the governmental market in the French part of the Switzerland. During his 5 years at Cisco I develop the aggressively the market share of Cisco in the local government accounts and later into Swisscom account. I spent my last year at Cisco to develop a new business line dedicated to the CATV networks. In 2001 I create my own business in following two directions, one as coach for enterprises and the second to develop tailored solutions to help enterprises to manage their customers or partners. The main coaching activity was to lead a branch of a national telecommunication operator during more than 3 years. I create software to help cable television provider to manage internet services. I’ve sold this activity to  French company in 2005. After the reselling of the activities I decided to join a new startup as employee and co-owner, providing anti counterfeiting services, as Commercial Director.
