Jacques is an Associate at CEG Europe and is based in the Zurich Office. He conducts economic and econometric analyses in the contexts of complex competition, merger and litigation matters. His industry experience covers retail, TV advertising, board games, life sciences and road signs.
Prior to joining CEG, Jacques worked as a competition economist at another consulting firm, where he advised on the assessment of overcharges in damage claims, on a merger case and on market definition issues. Next to his studies, Jacques worked at the Toulouse School of Economics as a teaching assistant where he taught macroeconomics and microeconomics to nearly 100 students. Jacques also worked as a research assistant at the French national research institute and built a database on French wine merchants that did not previously exist on the French territory.
Jacques holds a Master’s degree in Economics of Markets and Organizations with high honors and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics (minor in management) with high honors from the Toulouse School of Economics.
He is native in French and fluent in English and Lingala.
Jacques worked on quantifying damages suffered by a firm in a multi-year cartel in the road sign industry. This involved the assessment of a counterfactual scenario taking into account the evolution of costs and other parameters that were independent of the effect of the cartel on the price charged by the cartelist firms.
Jacques has been awarded two scholarships for excellence covering the full tuition fees of his two years of master's studies by the financial committee of Toulouse School of Economics.
