Industry Spotlight – Christian Olivaux

This week we are shining an Industry Spotlight on Christian Olivaux, Director of Programmes for Turgis and Gaillard Group.

His career path proves that there is more than just one way to reach a certain goal:

 

What is your background and how did you develop the skills to direct a company?

I am a flight test engineer. I have been in the army for 20 years, especially working on prototype tests. Then, I have run programs in different companies in France and in Germany. After that, I created my own consulting company in 2012 and I have worked many times in leading programs. I joined the Turgis et Gaillard group in 2017 in order to conduct the group’s transverse design office: AA’ROK the company which produces the SunWave boats. We carry out the special projects of the group. Thanks to my atypical career path I have learnt a lot all my professional life long and I have succeeded in many complex programs in management in technology and also in finance. Thus, I have kept on improving and I am now directing AA’ROK – the transverse design office of theTurgis et Gaillard group.

Anton joined the team in his last Bachelor year and is currently studying a Master of Electromechanical Engineering and Offshore Engineering.

Check out his experience here below:

“I currently have no clear idea of what I will be doing the first few years yet. I still have too many interests in different industries, like environmental engineering, bioengineering, and others.

Probably I will continue studying for a while to enlarge my career options. My aim is to grow into an executive position of a company, so I can lead projects,
solving various problems that challenge me.
