Mathieu is a Senior Product Manager in the D10X APAC program. He overviews both the strategic roadmap and the day-to-day development and launch of the D10X portfolio in APAC. He consistently ensures that the voices of the clients are conveyed at all the steps of the product lifecycle. He also collaborates closely with Citi tech teams and fintech partners to improve the agility of delivery and thus the Time to Market. He is by heart a problem-solver, making the ambition and scale of the Citi Ventures program deeply appealing to him.

Mathieu holds an MSc in geology (France) and a double MBA from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and Waseda (Japan). After 10 years on a traditional IT path with BNP Paribas and Vodafone France, he moved to Singapore in 2010 to pursue his entrepreneurial journey. He was the Director of Technology of Savant Degrees, an innovation agency, where he led multiple products (e.g., Telkom Indonesia and SingPost) and open innovation initiatives (P&G). He then joined Epigami, an online education startup, and co-founded his own venture in HR Tech.

Beyond work, Mathieu is a black belt Aikido instructor. He also used to intensively play the game Go, and even spent two months in Beijing for a Go study trip.
