Because he manages the scope of tech partners, he needs to have a non-specific mindset. He enjoys the variety in his work each day, which provides new discussions and ways to learn.
Although Vincent Coutin relishes the innovation of the tech industry, you may be surprised to find not that long ago he had a completely different career. Read on to learn about his journey.
Vincent Coutin: “I joined HiPay (French Payment Service Provider) in 2020 for the position of Channel Manager, managing both SI and tech partners.”
VC: “It’s great for freedom of action, strong trust of the management and the means of its ambitions. And on a day-to-day level, it’s great to work for a very partner-centric solution which allows a natural engagement from the best-of-breed partners.”
VC: “In one day, I can have discussions about Product Information Management (PIM), Order Management Systems (OMS), payments, headless and merchandising with my partners. For [someone] very curious with a thirst for knowledge, like myself, it’s a paradise!”
VC: “I used to be a professional basketball player from 2006 to 2016, so easy guess.”
VC: “Baby clothes and toys right now.”
VC: “Delivery breakfasts.”
VC: “It never stops innovating. It’s always in motion, creating new solutions, scenarios and challenges.”
VC: “I will answer that question indirectly. Common thinking is to take ecommerce as granted and daily habits, but when you watch the actual GMV numbers offline vs. online, you realize ecommerce has very good days ahead, massive room to improve and get better.”
