1 - Hi Jeremy. Firstly, tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m from France and I studied international business in both France and the UK. I’ve always had an interest in technology and all different aspects of business. I spend most of my free time with my kids and watching sports.
2 - Tell us about your role at Reach.
I started as a Spanish Account Manager nearly 8 years ago at Reach and my role has changed over the years. I now oversee international growth and my role is to ensure that we have a global strategy in place which covers both short and long term.
3 - What does your typical day include?
I have several jobs really. Mainly, I assist clients with international queries and advise on the different regulations in place in every country. I also try to increase our direct operator connectivity and negotiate with new mobile operators, selecting which destinations where we see growth and where I feel it would be strategically a good move to have our own direct connections. Finally, I have regular meetings with our international team to ensure we are on target to meet our goals.
4 - What do you enjoy most about working at Reach?
The flexibility. It’s like having the benefits of having your own company and not the worries of losing everything. I am free to plan my day as I want, without having to report to management about what I do every day. It’s also the flexibility to be able to get out of the office when you need to and knowing your boss trusts you.
5 - If you weren’t a Head of Business Development, what would you want to be?
Anything at Reach. Get Reach or die tryin ;)
6 - Finally, SMS related, what was the last text that you received?
A booking confirmation from my favorite restaurant.
