Sebeastien is now holding the Head of Finance and Planning position and will be responsible for the overall leadership of the financial department and financial staff.
He will plan, direct, control, analyze and coordinate the financial activities of Poken.

Fast-growing companies need great people … but great people want to work for great companies too, right? That said, let me introduce you to the latest member of the Poken Team, Sour CHHOR, who joins Poken as Chief Strategy Officer.
How will Sour help make Poken even greater ? Let’s put it this way – Sour is one the founders of Near Field Communication (NFC). NFC is the technology built inside every single Poken that we sell. You may not know much about NFC (yet), but you will hear about it a lot over the next few years. In addition to these obvious benefits, he will bring us more than 20 years of experience in the high-tech industry!
In his new role, Sour will be directly responsible for helping to define Poken’s overall business strategy and developing new business opportunities.
We would like to introduce you to the newest member of the Poken Team – Carole Putallaz!
Carole is taking on the Head of Marketing & Communication position as of Monday, January 3rd.
She will be in charge of Poken’s presence on the web and will be handling all Marketing actions (on and off line) to create awareness and interest in our products. Carole will be the new “voice of Poken” and will make sure that our company “sounds great”.
Carole’s background is quite impressive as she has over 9 years experience in international B2B Marketing and Communication in various industries, being comfortable with technical and fast moving environments like ours. She has in-depth understanding of Corporate Communication and PR strategies and will be a great asset to our company. We are confident that once Carole’s on board, Poken will know some serious popularity and therefore new sales opportunities.
