As an adaptable Media Production Manager with a diverse international background, I bring to the table a unique blend of commercial acumen, creativity, and strategic leadership. Notably, I founded a successful media production agency in Vietnam, delivering high-impact multimedia campaigns for a global clientele across 43 countries.
I presently lead a creative team at PM-International, a 2.5 billion Euros food supplement enterprise, managing key media production projects and optimising business processes.
Proficient in a broad range of pre-production, production, post-production, and publishing tools, I'm positioned to drive innovative content creation. With strong bilingual communication skills and a proven record in multicultural settings, coupled with resilience and creative problem-solving, I am equipped to make significant contributions in dynamic, challenging environments.
My professional journey
As a multicultural French citizen, I am presently based in Luxembourg. My professional journey spans multiple geographies and sectors—initially building a successful 9-year career in jewelry sales and marketing across locations including Tahiti, Hawaii, New Zealand, and Hong Kong. This international exposure fortified my commercial acumen and adaptability, which I applied when I transitioned into media production in 2013.
I founded and spearheaded a media production agency in Vietnam, leading an inventive team of five creative professionals. Together, we executed an array of multimedia campaigns, curating visuals, photographs, and videos for an impressive clientele of 176 high-profile individuals and companies across 43 countries. Our customer-centric approach translated into an exceptional satisfaction rate of 98.7%.
The COVID-19 pandemic, however, imposed unexpected challenges, forcing me to cease operations in Vietnam while I found myself bound by travel restrictions in Europe.
Presently, I channel my expertise into my role as the Media Production Manager for PM-International, a prestigious food supplement enterprise that reported a revenue of 2.5 billion Euros in 2022. I strategically guide a dedicated team of four photographers and videographers, facilitating the production of diverse, engaging media content that enhances our brand identity.
My professional scope also encompasses comprehensive coverage of critical company events, transforming them into memorable visual narratives that capture our brand's essence and values.
Applying my proficiency in process optimization, I have successfully developed robust business operations within our media department. This has not only enhanced efficiency but also achieved significant cost reductions. My strategy-oriented approach has been pivotal in boosting our department's performance, ensuring the delivery of high-quality output while upholding fiscal responsibility.
