Frédéric Plais

Co-founder & CEO Platform.sh

  • An entrepreneur at heart, Frédéric Plais began his career in 1997 at L'Oréal, after graduating in marketing and business at ESCP Europe.
  • He launched Infoclic in 2000, a natural language search engine. He then joined SFR and took over the management of the music, games and premium content department, where turnover grew from 10 to over 130 million euros in 5 years.
  • In 2007, he launched his own web agency specialising in e-commerce, AF83. In 2010, Frédéric Plais set up Commerce Guys, alongside Ryan Szrama (Drupal).
  • A visionary, he sees in the rise of e-commerce an opportunity that has yet to be exploited. In 2015, Platform.sh was created as a spin-off of Commerce Guys. Co-founded with Damien Tournoud (CTO) and Ori Pekelman (CSO), the platform quickly became a key player in the European cloud.
  • Today, the scaleup, which is a member of FrenchTech 120, is the leader in website and application fleet management and has more than 5,000 customers and 300 employees in 14 time zones (100% remote operation). The company has already raised €40M since its creation.
