Senior Corporate Counsel - EMEAR SP - Cisco Capital

I am a lawyer (with attitude, as I like to think). I work by the mantra speed-quality-availability. Always with fun :)

I have joined Cisco beginning of July this year, in Annick De Waele's team - EMEAR SP legal - covering Cisco Capital business for the region.

I have lived and worked in different countries, with different systems of law and with different cultures. I feel privileged to have learned from the good and bad in each of them.

Before joining Cisco, I have spent a few years in domestic and international law firms, working initially in banking & finance, then moving to structured finance. My first in-house role in the UK was with De Lage Landen (the leasing arm of the Dutch bank Rabobank) as their general counsel for the UK.

What do people say about me? Only nice things obviously! A challenger, a fixer, an agent of change.
