As a former entrepreneur, I have a keen sense of shareholders’ and managers’ stakes in M&A processes, which I use to build mutual trust, challenge ideas and be a partner committed to results.

Arnaud is instrumental in building Lincoln’s relationships with private equity groups and the firm’s presence in France.

Arnaud has been involved in more than 40 complex and cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&A), with a leading role in both initiation and execution. He has a strong understanding of corporate clients’ requirements, as well as financial investors’ expectations.
