Can you introduce yourself?

François

I joined Argos in 2017 after three years in strategy consulting, and prior experience in law firms and investment banking. Prior to that, I studied at HEC Paris. Additionally, I earned a postgraduate degree in law from Paris Sorbonne University.

What made you join Argos?

François

What attracted me the most about Argos was its strategy. In an increasingly-competitive European private equity market, Argos has the confidence to leave the beaten path and ferret out atypical opportunities. We favour unconventional processes, and we invest in companies with untapped potential. Then we support management to strengthen the businesses and fuel growth. More than a motto, our complexity-driven strategy is a daily commitment. With each company I have had the pleasure to support, the intricacy is palpable: Selmer, a primary buy-out with tremendous industrial and commercial transformation potential; Efeso, a public-to-private situation and a wonderful human story; Maison Berger, a manager buy-in with rebranding and digitalisation issues; EPC, a group whose transition from family ownership to investment funds has unleashed new energy.

François

As an investment manager at Argos, my role is to oversee investment processes and help our portfolio companies create value through business transformation. Every day, what drives me the most is the close relationships I have with portfolio company managers. Helping them to solve their business issues is very different from my past life as a strategy consultant: I no longer focus on short-term assignments but more on long-term value creation, and the sound human relationships that goes with it.
