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.
