Bio: Bertrand Guillot started his career at Arthur Andersen in France where he was responsible for chartered accounting and auditing. After two years, Guillot joined McKinsey & Company in their Paris office to improve internal finance processes. During that time, he worked on implementing global shared services centers and global tools. After 11 years at McKinsey, Guillot decided to branch out and followed investors in creating a new group of medical labs in France called Accolab Laboratories. There, he served as the general manager of administration, finance, and IT, assisting the group in acquiring its first €7M in revenues.
In 2012, Guillot left Accolab to launch his own consulting firm, ComeXium Consulting, to offer medical labs a panel of services related not to medical aspects but rather to performance. Cost optimization, strategy and development, governance, project management, and transactions are all areas of concentration at ComeXium. Meanwhile, to help labs cut costs, he and a team of medical biologists created a network of independent labs called Bio-Inov, where Guillot leads as CEO. Bio-Inov is today a group of approximately 40 points of blood collection in the Paris region, enabling participating labs to optimize performance with shared services.
