Apart from being an experienced insulation business professional and devoted colleague, he tries to stay true to his passion for traveling and exploring new countries, always planning his next expedition.

How did your story at Knauf Insulation begin?

I first meet Knauf Insulation while I was still in my previous job, so my first contact with Knauf Insulation was as a customer. After some time of great collaboration I got a proposal to join their team and to develop French market in Technical insulation.

What do you love the most about the insulation?

What I like the most about insulation is large and diverse product range with so many different kind of applications. That opens many opportunities to get insights into many interesting projects and meet new people all the time. One might think that insulation business is boring, but it is far from that. “laughter”

How do you see the future of insulation business?

Insulation business is a business of the future. It will grow and develop simply because it is “on the side of the good guys” fighting for a better world by enabling more environment friendly and sustainable solutions and processes for industry.

What is your favourite sport?

I run at least twice a week to clear my head and stay in shape.

What did a Covid19 lockdown bring for you?

During the lockdown I learned new ways of communication. Even if online platforms and calls help to keep on going professionally and stay in touch with people personally, I believe / and feel that the in-person communication is what we need to thrive. Apart from that I spent more time reading and cooking.

What would you do if never started a career in insulation?

When I was younger I had a dream to create my own travel agency.
