Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m a French citizen but I like to describe myself as a ‘citoyen du monde’ with 58% of my living time so far spent in France, 24% in the UK, and 18% in the USA. My wife is Italian, my eldest son Alexandre (12) was born in London, and Louis (10) the little one is a proud US citizen. I’ve spent the last 20 years having fun at media and tech companies, learning, learning and learning more!
Why did you decide to join LoopMe?
I’ve always forced myself to work in nascent and emerging industries : e-commerce with QXL.com (more…
) in Europe before eBay expanded outside of the US, Mail & Instant Messenger at Yahoo! when Skype, Whatsapp or even Gmail did not exist, video at Dailymotion which started on the same month/year as YouTube. I thought the next step had to be either at an AI company or at a startup building space shuttles to fly to Mars… Considering my background in video, mobile and digital advertising, LoopMe sounded like a perfect match.
What’s your job role and day to day responsibilities?
My title is called Corporate and Business Development. The most important keyword there is development. My day to day task is to further develop LoopMe into the world leader for attribution, AI-based optimization and analytics. That means embedding LoopMe in our vast ecosystem of media, carrier, retail, data, and advertising companies, as a unique solution and the best partner.
What’s been the best moment at LoopMe?
Each all-hand is actually a great moment at LoopMe. It’s invigorating to witness so much passion and energy each month. Information gets shared pretty transparently with each time new faces showcasing stories of how LoopMe helped a new Fortune 100 company better optimize their marketing spend, highlighting new awards for our AI technology, or new partnerships for our attribution product PurchaseLoop.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I joined my first startup in 1999, located in a kind of warehouse in the middle of Ladbroke Grove, London, building an online auction platform called QXL. At first, I think my parents were worried I got involved in some sort of money-laundering & illegal business. I still remember my visionary father wisely sharing with me: “Luc, this internet thing is NEVER going to work!”
