Matthieu Pirouelle

Director – Asia, Hong Kong

A brief description of your career history:

2 careers really (so far…): first in investor relations and financial communications consultancies, in the US and Europe, and then life brought me to HK, where I started in recruitment. 

What makes you ‘now’ in technology?

I am quite a geek, always keen to learn on the latest trends and technologies around us. 

One day, I will learn how to code. First thing I will then build will probably be an app to manage my wine cellar… 

What gets you out of bed on a Monday morning?

Learning new things. 

What do you see as the next big game changer within the Digital Media and Technology industry?

D.A.T.A. I really believe we are only at the very early days of what we can do with data, from how we capture it, to how we store it, and the potential applications in every industry. 

You call yourself a specialist. Why?

I want to understand what my clients are doing and why they are doing it. Only then I am in a position to assist them. And when your clients call you to get your opinion or some market intel, then I think you can legitimately call yourself a specialist. 

What is your greatest achievement?

Moving to HK. 

What is the best thing about your role?

I am lucky to do a job I love, for a great and innovative company, surrounded by great people, and in a place (HK) I really like. Really, could it get better?! 

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

A professional ice-hockey player. 

What is your favourite quote?

“Often... ‘luck’ is a combination of preparation, persistence, and opportunity.” —Manfred Kets de Vries, INSEAD Distinguished Professor of Leadership Development & Organisational Change 

If you could invite 5 people to dinner who would they be?

It depends on the dinner… a chef, a sommelier and friends for a fun night, or a couple of artists, a political leader and a couple of successful businessmen/women for a smart night.
