Xavier has been CEO of several lifestyle & FMCG companies in France. At Nocibé, where he led two consecutive management buy-outs with Bridgepoint and Charterhouse, he repositioned the brand of the cosmetics and perfumes retail chain and pioneered a multi-channel strategy – resulting in a French market share increase from 13,6% to 18,5%. After an early career in finance, Xavier moved into entrepreneurship as part of the core team that launched the Okaïdi children’s clothing retailer, and brought it to break-even within three years. Being a board member of Wolf Lingerie along with Gimv and Alsace Capital, Xavier became CEO in 2016 where he developed and drove a value-creation strategy based on a digital transformation and an overhaul of the business model.
