David Cressey is in charge of the Beauty Tech Accelerator in EMEA at L'Oréal, whose role is to develop the Group's strategic projects with high technological valence and embedded artificial intelligence.
Graduated from ENSAE, David began his career in the credit derivatives trading teams of Société Générale in London before joining the quantitative engineering department in Paris. He then specialised in statistical learning and extreme value theory.
After a stint with asset manager Lyxor as a structured fund manager, David joined LCH Clearnet to accelerate the redesign and development of the credit derivatives clearing house's risk models.
He then joined Capgemini Consulting as Lead Data Scientist. This was an opportunity for him to transfer his banking know-how to industries as varied as aeronautics, catering and oilseed processing. He has trained many data scientists but also more hybrid profiles, halfway between data science and consulting.
Before taking over as head of the Beauty Tech accelerator, David was head of IA strategy for BNP Paribas Retail Banking & Services.
