Graduated from an engineering and business school, Nicolas Grill started his career in Business Intelligence and then as an AMOA consultant on CRM and Marketing type projects. In 2017 he decided to embark on an entrepreneurial adventure in Singapore where he met Port-Cities in 2019. After successful collaborations, he decides to be part of the Port-Cities adventure and to take charge of the creation of the Port-Cities branch in France. November 2021 is the start of a big challenge to address the local and European market with a motivated team.

Nicolas is pragmatic, determined and open to new experiences.

One constant, he loves the pleasures of the table and conviviality.

Frank is passionate about computers, sports, cars and has always been interested in numbers. In 2014, he decided to go into the accounting and management field. After obtaining a Bachelor's degree, he joined a Master's degree specialized in accounting and management doing a work-study in an accounting firm. His goal is to become an Administrative and Financial Director.

As the months went by, he realized that the vision he had of his professional future did not correspond to his current situation. He then decided to reorient himself and enter a business school. In 2019, he joined the benches of Kedge Business School by following the courses of the Msc Marketing & Brand Management. This program allows him to discover project management and the world of startups through various internships.

With his analytical mind and his knowledge in management, Frank decided to reconcile his work with his passions integrating the IT sector.

Following his end-of-study internship in a Marseille-based start-up, Frank's ambition was to find a position related to project management, in the IT sector, in a human-sized company with a real consideration for its employees. After several interviews, Frank realized that a Project Manager position at Port Cities France would meet all his expectations.

Then, he joined Quintessentially company, a Luxury Lifestyle Management Service in Hong Kong.
After several years of experience in this industry, Theo decides to join Port Cities Indonesia (Jakarta) in 2019 as a Junior Project Manager. During the first months, he is trained for this job deploying the Odoo ERP in companies of the APAC area.

He quickly adopted the Port Cities methodology and the Odoo logic and quickly took charge of his first projects. In 2021, he joined Nicolas Grill, current Managing Director of PORT CITIES France, for the opening of the new subsidiary. Theo likes to keep a balance between his professional and private life. This is something he manages to do at Port Cities France in Marseille where he can pursue his various passions. He is an avid cook, a soccer fan on the field, in the stands and with the controller in hand, a seasoned diver and fisherman. In Marseille, Théo can enjoy the matches at the Velodrome, the sea and the local gastronomy.
