About Pierre

Fascinated by distributed systems, Pierre joined SpotMe in 2001 where a passionate group of pioneers were developing an innovative solution that would facilitate face-to-face interactions at meetings and conferences. In 2004, after a research interlude on formal verification of distributed algorithms at the NTT Communication Sciences Lab in Kyoto, Japan, he returned to Switzerland and SpotMe. Pierre established the company professional services model, grew the business within EMEA and architected the next-generation SpotMe technology platforms, released in 2007 and 2012, ultimately pivoting from a proprietary hardware rental business to a pure software product. Today, the company has transitioned its product and service lines to mobile apps, has expanded in Europe, Americas and Asia, and extended its offering to engagement platforms for events and teams.
Pierre is a graduate from INSEAD, Fontainebleau & Singapore, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne.

When he is not with customers around the world, or with his team in Singapore, Chicago or Lausanne, Pierre can be found sky running or ski mountaineering in the Swiss Alps.
