In 1996 Maxime narrowed his attention to the Panama business sector. He began as a distributor for a Swiss firm and advanced to the position as General Manager of Viveros Resort & Club land development project (Pearl Islands). This mark of success in Latin America’s real estate industry granted access to strong links, insider knowledge in offering sound business strategies and paved the road to the ever increasing real estate projects he continues to undertake.

Maxime first founded a French based business strategy firm in 2003 attracting prestigious accounts in the multinational retail and real estate development banking sectors throughout the region. He persevered and later founded Palmyra Consulting; a broker firm specializing in Latin America’s real estate industry. Thereafter, Maxime co-founded N&C Capital to encapsulate the Panamanian real estate investment and developmental industry.
