We’re ultimately bringing health monitoring technologies from the doctor’s office into the home, to help patients and their physicians make life-saving changes

Tell us about your own journey within Withings

After graduating from Cachan with a bachelor’s degree in robotics, I joined Withings in 2011 as the company’s first customer support agent. From there, I continued working in customer support, ultimately leading the team and building the quality and customer support functions in France and the United States. When Nokia acquired Withings in 2016, I joined Nokia Digital Health as the quality and customer service director. Now it’s back under the Withings name, I’m CEO. I’ve been proud to be a member of such an innovative company for almost a decade and really believe in the company’s vision of creating beautifully designed devices that people can easily incorporate into their daily lives to manage and take control of their health. At Withings, we’re truly improving the way both patients and the medical community are able to monitor, identify and understand health levels and issues. It’s great to be part of such an important company.
