Vincent is a former commodity derivatives trader with a strong passion in F&B.
After spending 9 years between Paris London and New York, he left finance to pursue an entrepreneurial career and focus on developing brands in the CPG space, a real 180 degree turn. Passionate about Food & Beverage since very little, he caught up with a long-time friend who had started a juice business and saw an opportunity to experience the change he was looking for.
In 2014 he joined as Partner and CFO of Love Grace Inc., a NY based cold pressed juice company specialized in HPP beverages. In that vertically integrated and fast evolving startup, Vincent was hands-on in numerous parts of the business, including production, procurement, fulfillment, sales and distribution, B2B and e commerce.
Love Grace’s revenues doubled the first year he joined and had a 25% growth the following year. During that period, their private label business took off and one line of products (3 skus) was accepted in Whole Foods Market. After two years, when targets were reached and growth stabilized, Vincent became a passive partner/advisor to Love Grace to be able to pursue other opportunities.
