  • About Us

    Jean Paul Meynard

    Managing Director

    DIY fanatic, novice sailor, cheese lover, wine connoisseur, innovation evangelist and happy dad.
    I am also part shape-shifter, adapting and moving easily between vastly different cultures, and part bridge-builder - designing and erecting robust structures that make two different businesses become one.

    MBA qualified I have a deep interest and knowledge in growth strategy implementation and company-wide transformations, that has borne witness to my significant successes in Europe and APAC as a Business Integration and Carve-out specialist.


    To discuss my work, explore opportunities to grow knowledge together, or obtain a honest feedback on a business idea, let's connect or meet up for coffee (or 🍷 ).
