Philippe graduated in Global Governance and Ethics from University College London. Before that, he studied International Relations at the University of Geneva, European Studies at King’s College London and undertook internships at the Luxembourgish Mission to the UN in Geneva and at the European Parliament. Simultaneously to his Master’s degrees, he co-founded L-Pod Ltd, a digital marketing agency based in Luxembourg.
Throughout his formative years, Philippe developed a strong interest in para-political domains such as policy research, interest representation and digital campaigning, particularly in the fields of corporate responsibility and citizenship, sustainability standards and private, innovative forms of regulation, cooperation and networking.
In line with this, his thesis addressed the dynamics behind the living wage’s momentum in the global garment sector, led him to interview major brands, unions, campaign groups and other stakeholders, and revealed a very refined environment of media attention, public pressure and negotiated authority.
His governance approach aims for engaging, efficient and increasingly digital communication. Notions of stakeholders, responsibility and accountability will allow for the pragmatic refinement and adaptation of your public relations for the better - for the more genuine and solid.
Louis is a partner at Oxygen & Partners, currently works in Zurich and, on a regular basis, consults the firm strategically in the fields of economics and finance. He holds a Master of Science in Financial Economics from the Erasmus University Rotterdam and a BA in Economics from the University of Zurich. Simultaneously to his studies, he co-founded L-Pod Ltd., a digital marketing agency based in Luxembourg. Prior to that, Louis undertook internships in the New Media and Account Management Department of Binsfeld as well as in the legal and communication department of the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI).
After his graduation he worked in the asset management department of Credit Suisse AG in Zurich and the economic research department of the Embassy of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg to the United States in Washington D.C..
Those academic and professional experiences lead Louis to develop a strong interest in research on international economics, as well as their impact on the “modus operandum” of small and middle-sized companies but also large corporations. The writing of his thesis on the topic of “Financial liberalization, entrepreneurial risk and the cross-section of equity risk premia”, in which he analyzed the predictability of portfolio returns via entrepreneurial distress factors and their correlation with the liberalization of financial markets in the U.S.,as well as "A comparative study on the financial performance of Green bonds and their conventional peers" lead to a further development of his knowledge in these domains.
A multi-stakeholder and multi-layered world comes with challenges of the same complexity. In his view, it therefore is essential to put governance decisions in line with economic considerations in order to allow for coherence and credibility in your communication. The identification of unperceived - current or future - conflicts of interests, of economic opportunities and threats just like of key macroeconomic developments and its translation into action in terms of public relations, communications and reputation management is the added value of his economic consultancy.
