Thomas has been involved in screening projects since 2001 when this market emerged. His first contribution was the design and development of the Safewatch solution for SIDE International, which quickly became a global success, with 200 customers in 50 countries.
In 2008, he joined a startup and brought new ideas to their case management solution by integrating innovative correlation algorithms and a new screening module, designed to cope with the emergence of large PEP lists. After the acquisition by Fircosoft, Thomas became a senior member of the global architecture team, sharing his expertise on mission-critical scalable systems to guide development teams throughout the company.
As a technology enthusiast and passionate in screening technologies, he's always keen to innovate in this area and decided to found Neterium in response to the explosion of market demand for highly performant, scalable and efficient screening, mainly driven by Fintechs having to fulfill KYC obligations.

Passionate about artificial intelligence, he is the main creator of a software allowing banks to filter their data to comply with international regulations to fight money laundering and terrorism financing.
