Orange Silicon Valley CEO Mireille Helou stepped into her new role from halfway around the globe in 2019, departing from her previous CEO position at Orange Réunion Mayotte. Her career at Orange has taken here across continents, as well as the Orange Group, which she has served in
Réunion, as well as Kenya, where she was the chief business market officer. Now, she is looking ahead to a new era for Orange Silicon Valley, where she intends to build on her past successes and bring the next wave of Silicon Valley innovation to Orange and its customers.
She spoke to the podcast about these aspirations, as well as the future of artificial intelligence, innovation in Africa, and what she has learned so far from the Women in Tech event series at OSV.
