Cyrille Brisson is Sales, Service and Marketing Vice President for the Electrical Sector in the EMEA region at Eaton Corporation. Beyond the traditional sales and marketing scope, this role includes responsibility for looking into the way market and customer requirements are changing as a result of digitization, the energy transition or societal pressures and the consequences of these changes both for Eaton’s business and for the way markets operate. This involves working closely with channel and integration partners on the evolution of the company’s offerings and working practices through this period of rapid change.
With a diverse experience in technology and economics, Cyrille invests time to look into how technical, process and business model innovation can be applied to improve people’s quality of life, access to clean energy, productivity or personal safety, while striving to anticipate and mitigate the impact that technology and market changes have on communities and partner networks.
Prior to his current position, Cyrille was VP, Marketing, and previously VP, Power Quality Division EMEA at Eaton Corporation. During that time, he organized research consortia looking into the future of power generation, energy storage, microgrids or the future of data centres and HPC, working with diverse research partners such as Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Nissan or École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
He has more than 20 years of experience in the industry and began his career at Schneider Electric in 1995. Before joining Eaton in 2011, he had held several positions in Schneider Electric in headquarters and industrial and commercial subsidiaries in France, Japan, Singapore, Israel and Colombia.
He started his career in Finance, IT and Logistics before transitioning to general management roles. Cyrille graduated from HEC Paris, with a major in Tax and Law.
