Julien has over 20 years’ experience in building new ventures in different industries (incl. Automotive, Travel, IoT and now Finance). As an innovation-minded intrapreneur, Julien is managing uncertainty at the crossroads of technology, user experience and business including “0 to 1” bootstrapping of businesses: he created new divisions, new groups as well as new products within large corporations and smaller structures alike, addressing both strategy and execution of this strategy.
Just before joining BNP Paribas in February 2018, he created and headed a department focusing on disruptive innovation for Amadeus IT Group. As such, he was managing a set of former start-uppers, UX and technologists to create new businesses, including mandate from ExCom to disrupt the company’s business model. Julien now heads the IT Digital Accelerator at BNP Paribas CIB, a department aiming at going faster from “Lab to Prod”, bridging the “exploration” and “exploitation” worlds.
Julien also teaches Storytelling to PhDs in engineering and Creativity to MSc Business School students, and was Chief Mentor in a startup acceleration program.
