GARY’s PICKS | The Frédéric Bruneau Interview
Join Gary Fowler as he interviews Frédéric Bruneau, Founder & CEO of Foxy Nerds, a B2B awareness company
|Frederic is the founder of Foxy Nerds, which provides influencer solutions to B2B Tech companies. Frederic has sales and marketing experience and a passion for building strong brands.
Frederic believes that every business leader deserves the right to be a trusted authority. He noticed that brand trust is declining over the years despite all the efforts in terms of communication and transparency and decided to create a platform that allows business leaders to become the voice of their companies in new media like podcasts or influencers’ publications.
Frederic started his entrepreneurial journey in college. Over the past fifteen years, Frederic developed his sales skills by closing millions of dollars in energy deals, worked as an innovation and CX expert with companies like Air Liquide or GSK, and immersed himself in tech through the development of a smartwatch for kids.
