F&SI Global Head for Defense and National Security, SAS
Emmanuel comes into this role after serving 28 years in the French military, followed by 3 years building a successful company that is a critical SAS partner, and then joining SAS in 2017. During his distinguished and highly decorated military career, Emmanuel moved from fighter pilot into various roles supporting intelligence operations to eventually being responsible for revamping the entire intelligence process for the French Air Force in cooperation with NATO and US. Throughout his career, he has been instrumental in pushing the envelope on how advanced technology can be leveraged to support intelligence operations. He continued this work at his former company Oak Branch, where SAS provided the core technology behind systems for intelligence fusion and analytics, including some pioneering work on early detection of radicalized individuals and fake news detection. Since joining SAS in 2017, Emmanuel provides subject matter expertise to Defense and National Security organizations.
