The creation of Zelin emanated from an original desire towards simplifying access to numerical simulation in order to be enable the greatest number of manufacturers to benefit from it. In one word, to “democratize” this expertise.
Today, Zelin is made up of experts (engineers, doctors, professors, etc.) who work in many fields such as aeronautics, space, transport or energy. We will help you in the development of your product through multi-physics numerical simulation and artificial intelligence, via our cloud-based platform.
The name Zelin is inspired from Zelos, a Greek deity who personifies emulation and zeal. Zelos is the brother of victory, power and strength. This divinity symbolizes the passion that drives us.
The Z in Zelin also takes reference from the Z generation, ultra-connected and enterprising!
Passion for Science
Ethics and Green Thinking
Who are we?
Julien is Zelin’s CEO and co-founder. He holds a PhD from the École Centrale de Nantes and an ENSIAME’s engineering degree, he also completed the MBA-CPA at Toulouse Business School. He has always worked in the field of numerical simulation, a topic that always fascinates him. With over 15 years of working experience with manufacturers (large accounts, eti, SMEs, start-ups), with a recurring motto: customer satisfaction.
As a sport’s lover, he has embarked on a new challenge that’s open to all Zeliners, talking here of the Triathlon.
The inspiration from this legendary hero would be to be able to democratize access to our profession, and advanced numerical simulation, to as many people as possible. We sign with a “Z” which stands for Zelin!
Julien is the CTO and co-founder of Zelin. Trained as an ISAE-Supaero engineer and passionate about numerical simulation, he has been simulating all types of fluid flow for more than 6 years. Thanks to numerical simulation and his expertise, he solves the most diverse problems by providing tailor-made solutions to achieve the best possible performance.
Shaped by the sea and the wind of his native island of Oleron, he enjoys a lot of nautical activities. He is also the spearhead of the Zelin Triathlon Challenge.
His superpowers reside in his discernment, his thoroughness and his love for cutting-edge technologies. An ambition, to make Zelin, an online platform that would be as efficient as a Batcave in the cloud!
A graduate from ENSEEIHT in 2018, Simon is an aero-thermal engineer and a CIO at Zelin. Specializing in digital fluid mechanics, he works on various innovative industrial projects.
A bon vivant and “bell-tower rugby player”, Simon never misses an opportunity to showcase the products of his beloved region, Béarn.
Robin is an aero-thermal engineer at Zelin. As an expert in numerical simulation and in fluid mechanics, he works on innovative projects. Being a graduate from INSA Rouen in 2015, Robin defended a thesis on the simulation and optimization of reactive flows before joining the Zelin adventure.
In his spare time, Robin trains in running (and more recently in swimming).
Like Batman’s sidekick, Robin is skillful and never loses his sense of humor.
Arnaud de Latude
Arnaud de Latude has a passion for entrepreneurship and the development of innovative projects. With his experience in business creation (he was the CEO of 3 SMEs in France and abroad), Arnaud coaches start-up projects, including Zelin.
Arnaud is also an instructor in entrepreneurship (BMC, lean startup, etc.) in schools and educational incubators.
Philippe has always worked in a Business Development environment, either within large service groups or as a company creator and/or buyer. He thus offers Zelin his experience, and his energy as a developer.
Within Zelin, Philippe handles the Customer approach according to an original and unique method of his own creation.
With a foolproof retort, Philippe fully demonstrates the extent of his abilities when he puts on his business development expert costume, like Ironman with his armor.
Denis Saint-Joan supports companies in their digital development and transformation projects. With more than 25 years of working experience in the digital field, he founded his company DSJ Consulting in 2014. As an expert in business strategy applied to new technologies, Denis studied at HEC Paris and Toulouse Business School (TBS) . It is in this area that he contributes towards Zelin’s adventure. Denis also works in Business Strategy at TBS since 2017 on the Grande École and Executive programs.
Denis shares Hulk’s unlimited strength, which he puts to work in his passion for rugby.
Dominique Schmauch holds a Master of Business Administration from HEC Paris, INAPG Engineer, as well as a master’s degree in applied mathematics. He has recently founded the firm known as Schmauch Conseil, an operational consultancy firm that specializes in entrepreneurial development issues. He contributes in Zelin’s board of directors by sharing with us his strategic excellence.
Dominique Schmauch is equally the author of several books on the support and management of changing companies, including:
- ‘Les conditions du leadership’ (L’Harmattan, 2005)
- He also contributed in the collective work “Leadership et management, être Leader, ça s’apprend’ (De Boeck, 2009)
Like the leader of X-mens, Dominique always carefully establishes the strategy to follow.
