Elie Auvray - Digital Transformation Entrepreneur

Elie Auvray co-founded Jahia Solutions Group SA after starting Jahia’s French operations in 2002, where he currently serves as president of the board and CEO.

A seasoned software entrepreneur with 18 years of experience, Elie founded his first company in 1996 with Thomas Draier. The company, Voice, pioneered easy-to-use web application development, with Vivendi as its first customer. In 1999, Voice merged with the company of the former president EMEA of Cisco Systems, Inc., in order to create a global software provider, Reef Internetware IP. Working closely with the CEO, Elie was the general manager for Reef France — the first country to overachieve its sales objectives for seven consecutive quarters — and built the first U.S. sales team in San Francisco, California. Consequently, Elie led its Europe Presales organization, developing and supporting the company’s partner network. Reef successfully raised 85 million euros in 2001 from international venture capitalists including Goldman Sachs, 3i Group plc, and Viventures. Mediasurface acquired Reef Internetware IP in 2002.
