Mélodie Zerba

Risk Management Business Development Director

After spending seven years in business development and communication roles in the insurance sector within a highly entrepreneurial family company, I wanted to join a fast-growing company that would still operate on a human scale. It was important for me to be able to maintain the internal agility that enables me to make proposals and actively participate in the development of a group’s activities. Forward Global fits squarely within this dynamic; after spending a year as part of the organizing team for the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC), I was offered the chance to work towards making Forward Global one of the key players in Risk Management. I now work with the compliance, legal, M&A, and business development departments of major groups and SMEs, as well as with investment funds and law firms. The diversity of our assignments and the international dimension of our capabilities make our work particularly stimulating. Our teams’ complementary expertise in cybersecurity, communications, and public affairs, as well as risk management, enables us to offer clients a “one-stop shop” approach which they find particularly appealing.

If I were to sum up my role in the group in two words, I would say that I “build bridges.” As Consulting Director for the communications agency 35°Nord, I manage multiple accounts in which we leverage the firm’s strong track record in Francophone Africa to deliver unparalleled expertise in strategic communications, public relations, and digital influence to other parts of the continent…
