Your consultant

Stéphanie Guilmeau

 With a 5-year degree in accounting and management, I have more than 20 years of experience in companies which compete in  challenging global markets.

My career began with  10 years of successful experience in various full time roles with  listed international companies (IMAJE, ZIMMER) where the financial function was essential: quick and accurate reporting, respect of deadlines (from D+30 to D+5 in a few months), implementation of procedures, as well as rapidly evolving information systems. I also participated in the implementation of an ERP in the European subsidiaries of IMAJE group as a financial expert in management information systems.

In 2008, I joined a young, innovative biotechnology company (GRAFTYS) as CFO in this highly regulated sector. I internalized the finance function, set up management control and appropriate accounting and financial procedures. After implementing an improved cash flow forecasting system,I developed business plans for investors. I also managed and secured the Research Tax Credits, which represents an important part of  financing for innovative companies. During all these years, I was the contact person for auditors, banks, investors, tax and social inspectors.

My values : Pragmatism, Openness, Efficiency, Integrity, Trust
