As a project manager, he has been responsible for overseeing complex, multi-year, integrated planning and design processes at a number of scales, from site-specific to region-wide.

He is fluent in French and English, and is based out of rePlan’s office in Dakar, Senegal.

Eric recently led the planning and implementation of a successful large-scale, IFC PS-compliant land acquisition and livelihood restoration process for a mine in southeastern Senegal. His experience in Senegal extends to developing company-wide Livelihood Restoration and Resettlement Policies for two mining projects, and applying those policies to ongoing resettlement and livelihood improvement planning activities. He is presently co-managing the land acquisition component of a bankable feasibility study for an IFC financed mine, port, rail project in Guinea, as well as two concurrent social baseline studies, including a survey of more than 3000 households, for two mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Eric is committed to the development and implementation of plans that reduce cost and risk for clients while sustainably improving livelihoods and quality of life for communities.
