Diffraction Analysis

I am the CEO, co-founder and Chief Research Officer at Diffraction Analysis, a consultancy and research focusing on the advent of next-generation access and its considerable impact on legacy telecom business models, service strategies, public IT policy etc.

Before that I was Director of Access Research at Yankee Group, covering wireline and wireless access with a team of 4 analysts. My personal focus for analysis was Next Generation Access Technologies.

My interest in NGA started before joining Yankee Group in early 2007 when I launched as a side hobby to my day job to discuss news, issues and opinions on the developing fiber to the home market.

Prior to that I was a manager with French telecom consultancy Arcome (now Solucom) Over the years I worked on numerous projects, both operational and strategic in fixed and mobile, retail and wholesale. As part of Arcome I managed a team of 15 consultants and developed the business of the consumer practice.

Prior to Arcome, I was working for Belgacom France. I first worked as a Market and Competition Analyst then as a product manager on local loop (FTTO) and business voice. In 1999 I was nominated as Market Manager for Voice services with a team of two product managers and one market analyst.

In 1994, I graduated from the Edhec business school in 1994 and immediately joined Group Schneider in Coventry, UK as a market analyst. In the course of the 2 1/2 I spent there, I worked on market reporting automation, data-mining and market analysis.

Specialties: Entrepreneurship, Marketing consultancy, fixed line services, mobile services, project management, residential services, business services, FMC, FTTH, NGA Regulation, etc.
