Our Amazing Team
I had the privilege to be brought on board early on by Nicolas and Nadya, first as an intern, next as a participant and finally in business development. Graduated in business management, I found a passion at CodeBoxx by combining business and technology. I highly value CodeBoxx’s social and economic mission that has produced such amazing results so far ... .and it’s only beginning!
With my Business development background in a different market, I was fortunate to meet Codeboxx on my path. A career re-orientation has been necessary in my course and Codeboxx was offering me the opportunity to develop very diversified fields and promote noble causes in a flexible and bold technological environment. I am proud to be part of the team and to contribute to it’s success.
