Grégoire is a Director in the Paris office with over 15 years of consulting experience with EDC in business strategy for clients in Asia, Europe, North and South America. Grégoire has worked in EDC London's, Sydney's and Paris' offices and developed global perspectives on payments. Within EDC, Greg leads EDC’s B2B Payments Practice and has developed specific expertise in retail and travel payments, working for all actors in the payments value chain (e.g. central banks, issuers, acquirers, payment schemes, merchants and payment providers). Outside of work, Grégoire plays the saxophone and loves baking cakes.
Over the past decade, there has been an increasing digitalisation of B2B payments and processes, and fintechs have significantly contributed to this digital transformation.
Payments are increasingly perceived as a key component of the strategy of travel-related actors, including both travel providers such as airlines and hotels, and travel agents such as Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) and Travel Management Companies (TMCs).
B2B payments are growing worldwide due to technological innovations in payment infrastructure, changes in customer expectations, the increasing number of new entrants, and regulatory changes.
ProcessOut develops a Monitoring & Smart Routing solution for payments. In 2018, they increased their transaction volume from $500 million in 2017 to $10 billion.
