The Peaceful Transfer
Sharing here that after 11 years with Fahrenheit 212 including 5 as part of Capgemini, as of this April I am stepping down as F212 Chief Executive Officer. I am incredibly proud that together we have built Fahrenheit 212 into an innovation powerhouse, a teaching culture, and a broad and global family. The path ahead within Capgemini Invent is bright.
I have always loved the eclectic, electric atmosphere of big, breakthrough thinking . . . and especially big thinking in service of clear goals, intention and purpose. Helping lead Fahrenheit across 5 countries in its many iterations has been a dream realized.
Beyond the commercial creativity of the new products, services and businesses that F212 defined, I am most proud of the talented people we have produced and released upon the world. Innovation is a discipline, not a random exercise, and with that lens we’ve used our pursuit of the world’s best innovation to produce some of the world’s best innovators. It’s quite likely you know one or two of them, or have been affected by one of their creations.
I feel incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity to lead and nurture many of the careers of both F212 and Capgemini teammates, but it’s now time for me to pursue other projects and build again, and to fully entrust our next leaders to create the next chapter of Money & Magic.
In parallel I will serve as an Advisor to both Fahrenheit and Capgemini Invent, supporting this incredible team’s growth ambition however I can. Special thanks to Cyril Garcia, Paul Hermelin and Aiman Ezzat for their tireless support and for enabling this journey that had no map.
Finally: endless gratitude for the Fahrenheit team, alumni, clients and partners who — to the extent that I’ve been there for F212 — have always been there for me.
Lots to do.
