Datanews nominated Emakina’s CEO Brice Le Blévennec for ICT Personality of the Year’.
He’s in good company, besides 24 other leaders of great organisations, who all set out new beacons on the lively digital seas, steering their crew to new and bright business horizons!
Brice’s nomination does not come as a too big surprise.
The man can fill a room any day with his high power energy and vision. His often bold, candid ideas have ‘stirred and shaken’ more then one experienced manager. But when it comes to digital vision, the smart combination of geek intelligence and business insights, he is a one of a kind power house and, well frankly, almost always right.
So the picture really fits. Le Blévennec fulfils the criteria for the award – and then some. He is a serial entrepreneur, who already at the age of 16 gave IT training lessons. Living and working in Belgium, he is a co-founder and CEO of Emakina, the successful Digital Native Agency, leading the way in ‘Building Brand Experiences’.
Innovation is in his blood, from the days when he created and presented his own cult Internet radio/ TV programme ‘Cyber Café’ (one of the first video streamed shows ever!). He stayed in the eye of the media ever since, has over 2500 followers on twitter, and impacted the push forward of digital solutions in the market.
First as Chief Visionary Officer and now as Emakina’s CEO, he hungrily seeks innovation, not for the ‘toys for boys’ value, but to push forward the objectives and business opportunities of Emakina’ clients. His path is one of a long series of high impact IT and communication ventures, with over 4000 local and international projects per year, well over 500 collaborators and offices in several countries.
Whether he will win or not on the award evening this 8th of May, Brice is a natural in ‘the winning business’. He focuses on what to do next and on spending energy moving forward toward finding the answer.
And as he himself likes to quote from Anatole France:
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream;
not only plan, but also believe.”
