A truly global businessman, he was born in Africa and educated in England and France. He traveled extensively as a child and adolescent living in Africa, India, Europe, Canada and Hong Kong, affording him invaluable insights into today’s multi-cultural world.
Didier started his career as an investment banker in the London financial markets. He also successfully co-founded two companies as their CEO: Thesaurus Group - recognized today as the benchmark information resource for the international art markets and Mintaka Technology Group, provider of the world’s first patented software intelligence system protecting against the threat of digital sabotage.
He started his real estate career in Las Vegas, NV, creating a lucrative business using his entrepreneurial expertise and financial background to consult on high-end residential, commercial, investment and development projects. He also brings to bear his skills as a strong communicator, writer, artist, professional photographer, graphic and web designer.
Before arriving to the U.S.A., Didier took a 2-year sabbatical from his career to travel the world where he extensively toured Southeast Asia, Australia and the Pacific Rim. He trekked Mount Everest and the Annapurnas, spent time with the shamans in the Sumatran rain forests and sailed across the Pacific on a 37ft Catamaran. During that time he became an accomplished scuba diver and qualified Dive Master, volunteering for research on Whale Sharks in Australia and diving in many of the world‘s remotest sites. He remains an avid enthusiast of the wilderness, world travel and photography.
Didier was originally drawn to the energetic, multi-cultural flavor that is New York City, notwithstanding the dynamic energy that is uniquely contagious to all who visit. Today, his experience, outlook and knowledge helps him focus on all his clients' real estate requirements, whether buying, selling, investing and renting properties in Manhattan.
