Lucas’s link with Marktlink
“It was during my internships that I first encountered the Corporate Finance profession. This interest was only stimulated more by choosing Investment Management at Tias. M&A-related courses at Tias then determined which direction I wanted to go in; mergers and acquisitions. I applied to a position at Marktlink and after the first few interviews, it was clear that Marktlink is the employer for me. Marktlink carefully supports and guides entrepreneurs through the entire buying and selling process with a broad sector focus. As a result, the work is diverse and there is a steep learning curve. The combination of an entrepreneurial, young and professional organisation and the financial and commercial aspects within Marktlink in assisting entrepreneurs really appealed to me. I ultimately chose Marktlink to play a role in one of the most important phases of entrepreneurs’ lives and ultimately create value for Marktlink by achieving great deals.”
