Olivier Lacroix

Your Digital Marketing Person

Who am I?

I’m Olivier, a French expat living in Ireland for more than 10 years. I started my career as a web developer in France. Today, I lead the European Digital Strategy and Website Strategy team of one of the most innovative companies in the world.

This is what 12 years of Digital Marketing Expertise in the B2C and B2B area looks like.

With a real entrepreneurial mindset, I founded one of the biggest blogs/websites for French speakers who want to visit or live in Ireland. Also, I lead mastermind group sessions and workshops about Digital Marketing. As a side-gig, I coach and consult in my free-time. My expertise and experience helps small businesses increase their digital presence online.

 Finally, when I am not at work, I ride my mountain-bike all over the world, and enjoy surfing and skiing. You can be certain those moments are all captured with my Gopro.
