Arnault Pachot

Co-founder - CEO

After completing higher education in Mathematics and Information Technology, Arnault worked for 10 years in various IT services in France and Canada as Development Engineer and Quality Manager.

In 2005 he discovered open software and is passionate about this new way of cooperation and sharing. An entrepreneur at heart, he decided to create OpenStudio in 2006, so as to provide website development services.

Thanks to his free contributions to multiple CMS, he was asked to work on increasingly important projects.

Year after year, his role at the heart of the company evolved: at first an independent developer, then project manager, now he’s the one responsible for the company’s strategy. He has played a major role in the technological choices of Thelia 2 and the internationalization of the software.

A father of three, he also harbors a passion for travel and gatherings!


Emmanuel Nurit

Co-founder - CEO

Emmanuel has been an e-commerce specialist for more than 10 years. He has worked for multiple agencies in France and found himself involved quite early on with open software, notably by contributing since 2005 to osCommerce software.

His desire for independence pushed him to create the community « Pas Facile A retenir » (Not Catchy) in 2005. The young company developed rapidly with prestigious contracts for the biggest of NGOs.

By the end of 2009, after meeting with Arnault Pachot, the two entrepreneurs found a common understanding and decided to work together in OpenStudio and recruit associates, so as to continue the development of their activities.

His warm personality and his ability to manage the associates around him make Emmanuel a charismatic leader appreciated by the whole of the company.

Passionate for both his enterprise and new technologies, Emmanuel also enjoys distancing himself from the work environment to be with his family, his friends, and his children.


Cédric Sibaud

Chief Technology Officer

After having worked in prestigious communications agencies, Cédric decided to create, together with some friends, the company called Octolys to create an offer of e-commerce related services. It’s 2005 and the e-commerce world is booming. The majority of offered services consists of proprietary software. Along with Yoan de Macedo, they decide to publish the online marketing software they’re developing under a free license: that software was Thelia. It’s the beginning of an adventure which will lead to the creation of more than 10,000 online stores in France!

In 2008, they meet with the manager of another company, OpenStudio, which works with open software. After many years of working together, in 2012 they make the decision to merge and invest in an ambitious redesign in Symfony2 of the Thelia software.
Gifted with excellent interpersonal skills and contagious enthusiasm, Cédric develops and organizes the commercial activity of OpenStudio. Nowadays, he runs the agency of Clermont Ferrand, comprised of 15 associates, including the R&D team of the new Thelia.

He uses the little amount of time his professional activity leaves him with to spend warm moments with his two children, his partner, and his friends, in their house in Ambert.

In 2012, he became an associate himself and gradually took over the leadership of the agency of Puy en Velay. He supervises 2 project leaders and 15 developers and graphic designers, all of them dedicated to high-profile clients.
