Frédéric Genta has been appointed Country Chief Digital Officer for the Principality of Monaco.
A graduate of ESCP Europe who also holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, this 36-year-old Monegasque national was a member of the management team at Google France, where he served in a variety of roles in Paris and Mountain View. He previously worked for Amazon and Orange.
Frédéric will be responsible for all aspects of the Principality’s digital transition, including smart city, e-government, digital security and digital law, and innovation (blockchain etc.), as well as cross-cutting issues such as e-health, e-education and e-communication in collaboration with the relevant departments. He will report directly to the Minister of State and will be involved in Council of Government discussions on digital issues in order to ensure productive cooperation between ministries.
Frédéric’s first task will be to define a vision for the Principality’s digital future, a new form of governance and a structure that will include, specifically, the Government’s five major players in this area (the Digital Advisor, the Department of e-Government and Public Information, the Department of Information Technology, the Monaco Cyber Security Agency and the Department of Electronic Communications). The means and resources required to ensure the success of this task will also be assessed.
