2 seasoned CFOs with more than 40 years of cumulative experience
Frederic BAECKE - Partner SC Leverage
Passionate entrepreneur, 20 years of experience as CFO @Flease, @Impact Field Marketing Group, @Schumacher Group and @Parcours.
To summarize my journey, I will say that I made myself all alone. I became Chief Financial Officer at the age of 27, although I didn't have proper financial credentials. Through hard work and passion, I demonstrated my value. After several positions as Chief Financial Officer, I quitted my job to become an entrepreneur, which allowed me to discover one thing ... I was made to lead and be entrepreneurial. I think that there are several profiles of entrepreneurs ... Me, I am a processor: ⇨ I arrive, I clear, I take the raw material, and make a finished product. Once it's done, I move on. So let's move on together to help you finance your projet.
Frédéric BOULEUC - Founding partner
8 years as manager @Deloitte in France and Brazil followed by 10+ years as partner @André Le Groupe. Frederic is now part-time CFO for scale-ups and founding partner @Super Capital.
