Claire graduated from Paris IX Dauphine University in Industrial Strategy. She worked for a year in the USA between California and Florida before coming back to France. Snapped up by the Energy department of the French industrial Group Bolloré, she stayed with this company for three years. Crude oil distribution was in crisis at this time and her experience in running a profit centre came to the forefront. Following this, she joined the executive sales team of Reynolds Tobacco France (Winston, Camel) where she also stayed for three years.
Brand development became her major concern as of 1998 when she joined the Real Estate department of Sephora ( LVMH Group) of which she later became Director. Claire stayed with Sephora for eight years before moving on to Marc Orian (LBO CDC Capital Investment).
2008 saw the beginnings of Claire's own company in retail real estate development. It's now fourth years on and 2013 is full of new, promising projects !
