Educational and cultural background
In terms of formal education, I completed my MBA at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, as a Fulbright scholar. From my earlier years in Europe, I received a BSc. degree in management from the leading French business school EDHEC in Lille, along with a certificate in marketing from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.
People often ask about my cultural background too: born in Paris and raised in the French riviera (actually a technology hotbed in France), I left in 1995 and have since lived and worked in the UK, the Philippines, Pakistan, California, and Canada. I emigrated to North America in 2002 and became a Canadian citizen. Currently, I reside in Toronto with my wife and daughter.
