Born in 1976 and a graduate of Rouen business school, Ilan Benhaim is the director general of vente-privee consulting. Associate co-founder of vente-privee.com, his main mission will be to help the biggest players in French commerce to develop a digital strategy and an innovative cross-channel network, in accordance with their global strategies.
The consultancy service brings to its clients a fresh look on the maturity level of their digital strategy (business, organisation) in order to define the necessary steps for development. A team made up of approximately 15 consultants and specialists from a variety of different fields, their aim is to propose an operational accompaniment such as the monitoring and improvement of sales tools (internet website, catalogue cross-canal features, logistics etc) as well assistance in the selection of service providers which can lead to the construction of a successful site.
Ilan Benhaim joined vente-privee.com during his last year of studies in the year 2000. Very quickly his potential was picked up on and he was considered “a small genius of computer science” by his associates. Avant-garde and passionate about new technologies, Ilan Benhaim was also the man who gave life to Jacques-Antoine Granjon´s revolutionary idea, by imagining the structure of the site and all its processes. At the beginning of the millennium, a professional and technical solution for the innovative model of vente-privee did not exist, Ilan Benhaim and the teams who began the venture had to think up and design the tools, systems and processes internally.
In 2006, he was named Director for Strategy and Innovation with the objective to standardise the savoir-faire acquired during the early years, to automate the processes and make the site secure. He therefore participates in the development of the enterprise and the transmission of skills/knowledge across 7 other European platforms as well as the site launched in the United States in partnership with American Express.
