Biography : A graduate of Ecole des Mines in Saint-Etienne, Olivier CAZZULO began his career in consultancy at DEVOTEAM before participating in the founding of the internet service provider Net-Up, a subsidiary of the AVENIR TELECOM group.

From this adventure in Web 1.0, at the dawn of the 21st century, Olivier would retain an entrepreneurial spirit and the conviction that the internet and digital were on the verge of revolutionising organisations and their business models.

In 2003 he joined DIGITECH, a publisher of document management software and market leader in France and in French-speaking Africa, where he occupied the post of Operations Director before becoming CEO.

It was in commemoration of Net-Up that he named his consulting firm Netsystem, in 2011.

External interests : In 2012, Olivier joined Syntec Numérique (professional association of the digital industry), becoming Southern Regional Delegate. Through this involvement he promoted the activities of operators throughout the digital value chain in the south and the opportunities offered in the sector (employment, training, attractiveness, parity, etc.).

It was within this context that he was offered a directorship with responsibility for digital at Medef Sud in 2015.

He participates in flagship projects such as the industry of the future (Alliance Industrie Du Future), smart cities (the committee of the same name at the Medinsoft business cluster) and digital transformation (for the SBA).

Olivier is currently a director of Syntec Numérique, IT consulting division.
