The route behind…
I was born in France where I lived and studied. I then moved to Portugal where I finished my College Degree in Business Management.
In 2009, I joined a US multinational company working in the Accounts Receivable (AR) department for the French market. Later, I joined another multinational company switching to the Accounts Payable department, here I could see the other side of the cash collection and understand it better.
In 2015, I chose to go to Ireland joining an Irish company, starting a migration of their Credit Control services from France to Ireland. In 2017, I joined another company in Ireland to work as a Credit Controller for the same market.
As a result of these experiences, I gained huge expertise in many different aspects of AR activities specializing in one of the biggest markets in Europe – understanding the needs, the requirements and gaining knowledge in various avenues on how to improve results.
I have decided now, to put in practice that expertise gained in order to help companies.
My team and I are working to integrate these skills to help our clients, from no matter nationality, to get better results for the French market.
