I am a Black French-Senegalese, born in Senegal and grew up in the multicultural Paris suburbs from age 6. There is a long tradition of strong working women and travellers in my family. As a result, I was raised into believing that I could pursue any career I wanted, anywhere in the world.
I have recently joined Architas UK as a proposition manager. I am responsible for proposition and development project work across the UK retail sector to drive new business inflows. I truly enjoy the strategic aspect of my role, the feeling that I can add value to the business.
I started my career in Luxembourg as a Marketing specialist for a big French bank and then joined Carmignac in 2010 as a Market Watch and RFP specialist. In 2013, I moved to London to work for Carmignac’s newly created UK business development team with a focus on strategic partnerships and platform relationship management.
I hold a Master in International Business from Grenoble School of Management (France) and an MBA from Southern Illinois University (US). I am a keen cook, so when I am not working, I like to organise feasts for my partner, friends and relatives.
