Julien fell into the "magic potion cauldron" of theme parks at a very young age! After graduating as a mechanical engineer and spending the early part of his career working on small leisure and museum projects, he joined the Compagnie des Alpes in 2013.
His first mission was to set up strategic masterplans for the CDA parks and in particular to work on the redevelopment of Walibi Rhône Alpes and Walibi Belgium. Since then, he has accompanied these parks through the various stages of their new development and has also been involved in the creation of numerous new visitor facilities, including attractions but also restaurants, shops and entrance areas. His most recent projects include the "Kondaa" area at Walibi Belgium, the master plan for the recently acquired Familypark or the upcoming LSM Coaster area at Parc Astérix.
