My first job was in industrial software engineering but I moved quickly to the field of business software.
Whilst leading a national team of 12 business software developers at PwC (myself being based in Lausanne), I pursued an executive MBA in Technology Management at the University of Fribourg, I wrote a thesis on “Forensic Readiness” and moved to Zurich to become the lead of PwC’s Forensic Technology team.
As a Forensic expert, I worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte and KPMG and also co-founded the Swiss practice for Stroz Friedberg, a renowned US investigations and security boutique firm.
I have led numerous investigations related to fraud, employee misconduct, anti-trust violations, corruption, data leakage and data breaches, cyber incidents, as well as a wide range of regulatory and compliance work.
In particular, I have directed numerous highly complex banking fraud and regulatory investigations using advanced analytics and e-discovery techniques, incl. machine learning and predictive coding and also successfully delivered some of the most significant cross-border investigations related to corruption and anti-trust in the manufacturing, consumer business, and life science industry across Europe.
I frequently assist major law firms with my specialist knowledge in Computer & Mobile Forensics, Data Analytics, e-Discovery, Cyber & Data breach Response, Diligence, Corporate Intelligence and Investigations.
I love to travel, my favourite destinations being the Mediterranean, South-East Asia and Africa.
I grew up speaking Dutch (Flemish), then moved to the French speaking part of Switzerland for over 10 years where I “perfected” my French, then moved to Zurich where I had to learn German, and now, after my recent move to the Italian speaking part of Switzerland, I am learning Italian.
