Discover more about Akita’s leadership and the expertise behind the company:
Christophe founded Akita in 1996 and still leads the business today. Starting out by building and supplying clone PCs for the local business community, these early days shaped part of the company’s ongoing DNA of providing transformational business services.
As the business grew and expanded its outsourced IT offering, Christophe moved into a more sales-focused role, and then into a strategic role in 2016 with a team around him.
Christophe’s approach to management has remained strategic rather than overbearing. While he maintains a clear vision for the direction of Akita and remains proactive within the company, he takes full consideration of the opinions of the expert team he has hired to achieve those goals.
