CYRILLE GAILLARD Business Developer

When Cyrille came to Dunkirk for the first time, he little thought that he would settle here permanently ten years later. As he has had an extremely varied and versatile career, our team very soon nicknamed him “the Swiss army knife”! Having first joined the agency to develop and promote Dunkirk’s attractiveness to German companies, Cyrille is just as comfortable with entrepreneurs who speak English or Spanish. Passionate about the world of business, new technologies and sustainable development, he will give you invaluable advice about your project, whether it’s in the energy sector, green chemicals or any other line of business. And if you have a workshop or offices available that might be of interest to a company director, he will be happy to come and visit with a view to adding them to our property database.

 

Distinguishing features: Very busy but always available! He enjoys jogging along the Malo-les Bains seafront, but if the weather’s bad – which is extremely rare in Dunkirk – you’ll find him at the cinema.
