Xavier Renard has over 15 years’ experience in Product and Strategic Marketing and over 20 years' experience in the Telecom and Datacom industries.
Developing his marketing skills at Nexans (now Aginode), he supported and commercialized new infrastructure connectivity product lines for the FTTH markets in Europe. His proven commercial experience led him to take the responsibility for the marketing team.
At Schneider-Electric, he streamlined portfolios relating to the building network infrastructures in EMEA, opened operations in new countries, and provided and executed a strategic vision to increase value through digitalization in smart buildings. Schneider-Electric’s commitment to sustainability, reflected in its award for the world’s most sustainable corporation by Corporate Knights in 2021, enabled him to learn how to assess the environmental impact of products. Continuing these efforts, Xavier joined ACOME - a company deeply involved in measuring and reducing its environmental footprint since the 1980s - in 2019 as Marketing Director of the Telecom Business Unit and became a Board Member of the FTTH Council Europe in 2022.
