Emmanuel is a bilingual information technology professional currently based in the U.S. with over ten years of experience in the private sector working within and coordinating international projects. He gained his Master's degree in IT Management from his alma mater; France's prestigious école Pour l'Informatique et les Techniques Avances. Over the last decade, he has used his skills in software programming and his business savvy to assist companies across a variety of sectors and industries enhance productivity, streamline web-based platforms, optimize market analyses and translate their commercial needs into technical realities.
Emmanuel spent five years as a Program Manager with a New York based French multinational where he led a team of project managers and product coordinators on a global e-commerce initiative. In 2010, he used this expertise to become a full-time freelance consultant before founding his own IT consultancy, Yurbees Ltd., in 2011. He has recently co-founded his second, San Francisco-based, online enterprise.
Despite his tireless commitment to his professional work, Emmanuel still found room to split his time between Paris and FED's head office in Thailand - where he volunteered for two years. During his time with FED, Emmanuel taught a series of highly popular web development classes to Burmese teenagers at the Youth Outreach Center and was on-hand to respond to the IT requirements of the head office. When he is not in front of a computer, Emmanuel enjoys traveling, diving and skiing and is particularly fond of international cuisine.
