Spyros Papadimitriou, Senior Vice-President Infrastructure and Outsourcing Solution at Swisscom. Founding Partner, Agil IT. I have had the pleasure and privilege to collaborate with Christophe in one strategic outsourcing project I worked in. Christophe managed the whole change management process, identified the risks and put in place a risk mitigation plan. He managed communication and supported team members in the process of transforming the way they work and developping new skills. His contribution has been key to the success of the project. I can strongly recommend him as a consultant and a talented professional.
Renata Mantovani, Director Human Resources Latin America, Ultragenyx Pharmaceuticals. I recommend Christophe both as a coach and mentor. As a coach, he helped me during two career transitions, at first when I moved from a country to a regional role and the second time during a career change. I was successful both times. Christophe has also been a mentor for several years, supporting my professional development and helping me move ahead during challenging times. I especially appreciate his solution-focused approach and inspiring way to deal with people.
Camilla Hartvig, Senior Vice-President International Business at Alexion Pharmaceuticals. Christophe’s sound advice, guidance and leadership have been key in helping me successfully transform the EMEAC region and write the next pages of the history of Alexion. His international perspective and experience allow him to navigate a complex region, to build strong relationships with Country and General Managers and with the regional Leadership Team. He is a trusted and respected partner, coach, mentor and sounding board for executives.
Joanna Schneider, Founder Mental Wellbeing and Beyond-Well Circle. I had the pleasure to be coached by Chris at a time when I questioned my career choices and future path. Chris helped me figure out what I wanted (but was too afraid to admit). Not only did I explore all my options in record time, I also made significant changes to my career thanks to his help. Don’t hesitate to hire him, he is a great coach.
Samer Saadeh, Partner at Orphan Now. When I was transitioning to a new job, he was the professional coach I depended on to give me an honest appraisal of my positioning in the job market and to provide valuable insights based on his long experience. He is somebody that has a deep understanding of the business world and has the emotional intelligence and sensitivity to guide you through its challenges. I would recommend Christophe as a professional coach in a heartbeat.

He brings a very high level of emotional intelligence, which together with other competencies, has enabled him to develop strong trusting relationships with leaders from the business. Christophe is very proactive in finding solutions, even with very limited resource. In all his interactions he comes across as warm, adaptable, and considerate leader, with highest levels of integrity. He was a source of inspiration not only for his direct HR team but also within the business.

Gayle Gironda, Vice President, Human Resources - Hematology & Global Market Access at Bristol-Myers Squibb. I had the pleasure of selecting and relocating Christophe to Latin America from Switzerland in 2014 to build out, lead and support Alexion Latam regional infrastructure. Christophe is a very strong and intuitive HR Business Partner who quickly obtains the trust of his functional leaders and works with them to identify and implement the most effective human capital strategies. Christophe successfully worked to scale up the Latin American business, including the opening of a Miami, FL Regional office, which was fully operational within a 12 month time frame. I fully recommend Christophe - he would be a valuable asset to any organization.
