“While studying Industrial Engineering and Management, I was active as a student private chauffeur for an entrepreneur in the process of selling his company to a private equity firm. I saw firsthand how the M&A deal impacted him. That is where my love for the M&A field was born. Each M&A process combines strategic, commercial, analytical and personal aspects. The combination of the professional versatility of the M&A process and the social/personal aspect really appeals to me. It gives me energy to work with my colleagues to achieve the best result for my clients.”
