A native of France, Laurence started her career at Club Med where she was responsible for the finance and human resources operations for some of the leading Club Med locations in Spain, Italy, Mexico and Japan. In 2000, she moved to the Bay Area where she became financial controller of a fabless semiconductor company. As part of her job, she was responsible for the consolidation of the company's international subsidiaries. In 2004, Laurence moved to Switzerland where she became financial controller for EMEA for the then very fast-growing JBoss. In 2006, Laurence moved back to her home country, but to Toulouse this time. Here she was the CFO of an open source, service-oriented architecture (SOA) software business. In 2010, Sacha Labourey invited Laurence to take on the corporate controller position in the yet-to-be-named CloudBees. Laurence is a city council member, married to a Dutch engineer, has two kids, a fluffy labrador and loves reading techno thrillers and historical fiction.
