After his earlier work as Logistics Manager with Citroen Sport, he became active in private rally team operations, forming his own company, MY Racing, and acting as Team Manager with Kronos Racing.

He then returned to Citroen Racing where he also assumed work in the World Touring Car Championship.

His new position comes at a time when there is considerable confusion at the FIA in issues of vision for the future of rallying.

His position at Citroen Racing will be taken over by Pierre Budar.
