Meet David Decloux, Director of Presales, EMEA
Since 2013, I’ve enjoyed the great opportunity to manage a team of MDM, PIM, and DaaS Product Specialists in EMEA. That essentially means I am here to create the conditions of serene, interesting, fun, and most importantly, successful engagements for my team members. Enablement, team spirit, and thought leadership are some of the themes I work on consistently.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what led you to join Informatica.
The opportunity to grow as a sales professional, and join the leader in Enterprise Cloud Data Management to build an organization from the ground up is what led me to Informatica. Our team is truly a ‘startup’ within a structured, larger company, which I truly need and enjoy. I am a true believer in that data (and master data, obviously) fuels most of our world today and the most valuable initiatives at our customers. When I joined Informatica in 2010, following (but not part of) the acquisition of Siperian, I knew it was going to be a game-changer for the company, and I wanted in!
What do you enjoy most about working at Informatica?
The people! Having an EMEA scope is really a plus, and I’m amazed at how bright people are across all of our countries, specifically in PreSales of course! I really love how everyone is helpful, respectful, and full of great ideas! I’m proud of our products, our understanding of the market and the recognition from our customers. Being involved in discussions with people from Sweden, Germany, England, and Spain over the course of one day is extremely enjoyable and rewarding.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?
Is 007 a superhero? If so (he’s bulletproof after all), most definitely would be him, for very obvious reasons… . He gets it all in the end!
What advice would you give to job seekers looking to join Informatica?
Informatica is looking for high-potential candidates, so handle your application as you would a work assignment. Research the role, think about the innovative spin you – and only you - can bring. You’ll be joining the best team I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. Be prepared to invest a lot of yourself, and you’ll get rewarded!
