Having studied Economics, Politics and Social Sciences, specializing in Business Management, I worked for more than 15 years in the textile and clothing sector.

I joined the PPR group in 2000 and took over one of their companies as President and Managing Director. In charge of negotiating contracts with the group's strategic suppliers, she collaborates in the creation of an international purchasing centre and its deployment in Europe.

In 2002, I was hired by the Max Havelaar Switzerland Foundation to develop the fair cotton sector and lead the non-food sector. This involved the drafting of a specific "fair trade" standard for cotton, the introduction of cotton producer certifications and the controls of textile production chains.

Head of Switcher's Asia Office in 2006, based in India, I have coordinated production & purchasing and have implemented quality control procedures.

In 2008, I created a sourcing and management consulting office in Carouge, covering the following areas:

  • Audit, consulting and training related to the implementation of a sustainable development, CSR and corruption prevention policy.
  • Responsible sourcing advice ("organic" and / or equitable sectors)
  • Setting up a Supply Chain traceability system (from the raw material to the finished product)
