After meeting Olivier Duha at Bain & Company, Frédéric co-founded Webhelp, which originally provided online support services for businesses and the general public, in June 2000. Rapid growth and innovation over the following years has resulted in the BPO provider and customer experience engineer that is Webhelp today.
Frédéric graduated from HEC in 1992 and began his career in 1994 at L’Oréal. He handled marketing and familiarised himself with new product development, consumer brand management and advertising strategies. Paying close attention to new technologies, he decided to buy DIALOG, a software vendor, in 1998 and soon merged it with its competitor, IKOSOFT. He then joined Bain & Company in 1999 as part of the private equity practice, where he participated in several consulting assignments guiding the engagement strategy of major funding institutions.
Frederic is a Knight of the Order of Merit and the Arts & Humanities, and Commander of Wissam Al-Aouite of the Kingdom of Morocco. Since October 2011, he has been Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
