Under his leadership, Linklfuence focused its R&D investments in developing solutions for the consumer insights applications of social data.

Linkfluence was successfully acquired by Meltwater in 2021 to become its Consumer Insights Center of Excellence, operating as an autonomous business unit that Guillaume keeps leading, pursuing the same strategy with additional investments and support from Meltwater.
