This relationship included prominent personalities in Dubai and Sharjah (United Arab Emirates). He carried out in the Principality of Monaco, property developments optimizing his skills for responsibility in search for the highest and best profitability.
Bertrand strives to make things happen for his business partners, associates and primarily, his clients. He simply likes things well done.
