From 2009 to 2013, he joined Initiative France and was in charge of a program for Initiative Outre-mer platforms. In 2014, Initiative France entrusted him with the international development division to lead Initiative France's strategy in deploying its concept internationally, which is present in Morocco, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Mali, Côte d'Ivoire and Chad and has 14 active associations in these countries.
