For 25 years, Nicolas has been involved in French and European politics—both as an actor, and also as an observer of the often complicated and Byzantine world of how Brussels functions. He has a track record of successfully shaping public policy at the EU and national levels on energy, the environment and reputation issues. Prior to his role in PlasticsEurope, Nicolas worked as in-house PA director for a leading glass packaging company, general secretary for electronic and payment system trade associations and manager of Brussels-based PA consulting firms.
