After interships and first jobs in small companies across differents industries, I joined Symphonis in 2005 to build a financial department just after reaching breakeven. Symphonis was Credit Mutuel Arkea’s inhouse startup specializing in online brokerage. One year later, I was involved in the acquisition of Fortuneo Direct Finance and its merger with Symphonis giving birth to Fortuneo Banque, a leading player in online banking in France and Belgium.
In 2008, I was asked to create a team dedicated to support the corporate development of Credit Mutuel Arkea through external growth. My role is to contribute to open our business model:
– by combining our historic businesses with valuable additions through acquisitions or JVs ;
– and, by partnering with entrepreneurial and innovative companies, including FinTechs.
I am also a member of the board at Pret d’Union and Yomoni, and a member of investment committees at ISAI and Tikehau Capital Partners.
