We are delighted to announce that Vianney Brandicourt is joining Pico on June 28th, 2021 as Director of Product.
Most recently the co-founder and CEO of the venture-backed company Joinery, Vianney is a seasoned entrepreneur and product manager with experience leading data-driven teams.
Vianney started his career at Google in 2008, where he built data and visualization tools to help the largest brands maximize their return on advertising spend. In 2012, he joined Spotify’s nascent US office as the first Product Analyst, where he played a key role in making product discovery and delivery more iterative and data-driven. In 2014, he was recruited by Foursquare’s SVP of Product to distill key product insights for the executive team, and to improve data access and literacy across departments. In 2016, he made the entrepreneurial leap and co-founded Joinery with the mission of making moving in large cities more affordable, fair, and community-driven.
Vianney graduated from Columbia University with a BA in Economics and Political-Science, and holds a Masters degree in Economics from Sciences-Po in Paris. He is drawn to intentional and empathetic technology and loves fostering a data-driven "lab" culture where ideas can be sourced by anyone. He is also an On Deck Fellow and enjoys connecting with other product managers and technologists.
Vianney splits his time between Brooklyn and France with his wife Adrienne and their cat Django. You are most likely to bump into him in Prospect Park, either cycling for a few laps or enjoying a game of Go with friends.
