Supports global energy, industrial, and technology companies on strategy and transformation topics with an emphasis on energy transition and new technologies

Thibaut focuses on corporate strategy, new technologies, and company-shaping transformations with global reach.

  • shaping the future strategy and subsequent transformation of a European integrated oil-and-gas company, focusing on decarbonization and energy transition
  • leading a multiyear “full-potential” journey across more than 12 countries for a leading global energy group
  • defining new data ecosystems across industries—automotive, aviation, healthcare—with a leading technology and analytics company
  • defining value propositions and key application areas for analytics across industrial subverticals
  • supporting a multiyear transformation of an automotive group, including a shift toward e-mobility
  • supporting the shaping of an autonomous driving strategy of several leading OEMs
  • updating perspectives on investment trends and customer needs around future mobility technology, including published articles, keynote speeches, and lectures
