- Proven experience of developing effective relationships with business, technical and supplier teams at all levels.
Philippe is Director Of Strategic Technology at Macmillan Publishers.
Philippe tries to use technology to deliver a competitive edge in an industry that’s rapidly evolving from deeply traditional to digital-centric, both operationally and commercially.
His approach is informed by close to two decades of web implementation: for the digital agency LBi and subsequently running his own consultancy, Contented Management, where he worked extensively with UK government and across the entertainment industry, helping clients to choose technologies and deliver online initiatives to improve their business.
Whether working on the latest trends of psychographics and big data, or on more mundane HR and content management systems, Philippe is always looking beyond the hype cycle at ways to maximise the value of web and digital technologies.
One of the world’s largest book publishers, our titles range from the prize-winning literary fiction of Picador through to children’s stories like the Gruffalo.
