Erwan Derlyn

My name is Erwan. French native, I’m based in Stockholm since 2010 and work as an independent growth marketing consultant.  I help fast-growing companies with marketing strategy, leadership, and talent acquisition through workshopscoaching and advertising. I’m also a columnist at FrenchWeb and an occasional guest lecturer at the Berghs School of Communication and Linnéuniversitetet. 

I previously worked at iZettle (2013-2016) and Hem (2016-2017), respectively as Head of Organic Acquisition and Head of Growth. I hold an MBA in Leadership from Linnéuniversitetet (Kalmar, Sweden) and a Bachelor in Economics from The Faculty of Economics (Rennes, France).

On the private side, I’m a proud father of two, a basketball enthusiast, and a retired sneaker collector.
