Edwin Semmeley


Product & Program manager

Edwin, from Champagne since the 17th century, joined Haigo in 2018 after a stint by the United States and China. His motto ? Technology must first serve humans to bring positive change.

At the beginning of his professional career, Edwin worked in the agri-food sector, where he developed his skills at Excel and industrial project monitoring. Nevertheless, as he wanted to go further into new technologies management, he got a double master’s degree in this field, joined Softbank Robotics in Boston, and the Symfony open-source framework in Paris.

In 2016, he refocused and co-founded Familities, a platform to break the loneliness of the elderly, in co-construction with 150 families. Perfectly in line with Haigo’s values. He won European prizes, which allow him to internationalize and help more than 1500 families across Europe … but he wants to share his knowledge more widely and learn even more. Edwin then joins Haigo to support large groups in their digital transformation.

What does he love more than Excel and any tool that can improve productivity? Japanese literature (he has a degree in Modern Literature and is a big fan of Mishima), family dramas (nothing better than a Bergman for a lively evening), and trains (he is dreaming about taking the Trans-Siberian).

Do not hesitate to ask him all your questions about Chinese bronzes … ideally by enjoying a delicious cake in the tea room of the Jacquemart-André museum in Paris.
