I started FBF Services in 2022 because I wanted to offer my services to smaller organizations and teams that might not need or be able to afford a full-time Chief of Staff, COO, or VP of Operations with my qualifications, but that have problems or growing pains that I can solve for them. I love a challenge, and I always deliver.
Technology exists to empower and uplift people.
Increased productivity should enrich everyone.
Organizational change happens at the individual level.
We can build a more just world starting with the workplace.
What I bring to your organization:
People-focused management is critical to attracting and nurturing talent.
I bring winning strategies, tools and learnings from NGOs, government, and tech scale-ups.
Since graduating from Stanford University in 2010, I've split my career between the San Francisco Bay Area and Paris, France. During that time I've held positions in academic, nonprofit, start-up, scale-up and volunteer organizations, including École Polytechnique, Palantir Technologies, and Meero.
My previous experiences
Early in my career, I worked at Stanford University and was regularly referred to as a “professional get-stuff-donerer,” a title I earned by bringing together large cross-functional teams to deliver alumni-facing projects and products on budget and on time, every time, for six years.
Then I worked at Palantir Technologies opening and eventually overseeing the day-to-day operations of several satellite offices, and I managed infrastructure projects and developed tools to help employees to thrive in a workplace with colleagues in every timezone imaginable.
And at Meero, I created the operational structures and processes that underpinned the delivery of millions of images to clients all over the world, and then spent four years strengthening and refining them as the organization grew.
I founded FBF Services after leaving Meero in 2022, and since then have collaborated with government, non-profit and scale-up clients.
Are you a small or young business trying to grow?

Let's chat about what we could build together!
“Magali sh*ts value for teams in her sleep.”
“The bottom line is that if I was starting a company right now I'd definitely try and hire Magali.”
“Can we clone her?”
A few projects I can discuss:
Managed a portfolio of 50+ projects (from scoping to documentation and final reports) to improve the accessibility and design of French public services as part of the DINUM's Brigade d'Intervention Numérique.
Developed targeted feedback mechanisms to get better data from Meero's partner photographers, analyzed and reported on feedback data, and tracked KPI changes as Meero launched new initiatives.

Managed a fully remote and then a partially remote team during the COVID-19 pandemic with no drop in key performance figures or productivity.
Oversaw training, onboarding, project documentation / handover of Meero's APAC client portfolio to newly-hired teams in Bangalore and Tokyo.
