CEO Collaborative Forum

Hear what Dave Darsch, Founder of the CEO Collaborative Forum (headquartered in France), Thomas Bourgeois, CEO and Co-Founder of Dhatim (headquartered in France), and Jakob Skov, CEO of NKT Photonics (headquartered in Denmark) have to say about this unique, collaborative partnership.

About Our Partnership

The CEO Collaborative Forum (CEO-CF) has a very similar mission and vision as the Alliance of Chief Executives. Both are committed to enhancing the performance of our members through deep strategic collaboration and a degree of “trust networking” that is unparalleled. Our partnership, which began in 2011, provides Alliance members with valuable connections to CEOs leading European companies in our increasingly globalized world. Alliance members have the opportunity to meet personally with like-minded leaders from across the Atlantic in high-level confidential private meetings both in Europe and in the SF Bay Area. Our joint vision is to create the opportunity for CEOs throughout the world to come together to share experience, knowledge and ideas to enhance the performance of all CEOs. CEO-CF is led by Christian Dupont, based in Lyon, France. A technology business leader, Christian combines technical development expertise in semiconductor, wireless and imaging with entrepreneurial drive and strategic management skills. He is energized by people interaction, and passionate about high-tech business and strategy in worldwide ecosystems.
