Anthony expects his teams to do whatever it takes – that in reality, nothing is too big of a challenge
Anthony believes in the selection of individuals who are talented team players, rather than lone stars.
Anthony Dupré thrives on change. He is driven, innovative and enthusiastic – qualities you would expect from someone who has survived military school, the rigorous demands of developing tech start ups and raising a family in-between. In this digital world, he feels acquiring meaningful data and making sense of it is raising the bar for technical achievement. Painting a customer portrait that enables truly personalised interactions through all means accessible is key for many companies today. Anthony helps ensure the right mix of talent and the best performance possible – something he takes in his stride with a background in directing global teams and establishing management structures.
Although he grew up in France, Anthony spent formative years in Portland, Oregon, notably with Clear Access, a Telco start up where he built and lead a team of over 30 engineers. His primary focus is in developing value solutions; Clear Access proved their worth under acquisition by Cisco Systems. During the three years, Anthony threw his ambitions behind another US-based start up, Janrain, principally involved with SaaS based solutions. His primary challenge was bringing order to a chaotic business, and succeeding in the greater test of addressing customer demands of increased capability and more scalable solutions.
Anthony expects his teams to do whatever it takes – that in reality, nothing is too big of a challenge. He believes in the selection of individuals who are talented team players, rather than lone stars. This stems from a roll with the punches attitude developed at Prytanée National Militaire, where he learned the virtues of unity and dependability. Having developed equal passion for software engineering and the entrepreneur mindset by interning with Marc Simoncini, he later gained a Masters in the subject from EPITA Paris. He has put his hand to almost anything – including archery, rogaining, bass guitar, parachuting, mushroom hunting and certified log cabin construction.
