What made you join Argos?
I joined Argos in May 2010 as an intern, then became an analyst, an associate and an investment manager. I chose Argos first and foremost for the people. It’s great being part of a very experienced and people-driven private equity team. Thinking and caring about other people is an essential part of my daily work. For two reasons: one, because people are an essential part of our business. And secondly, because we are a small business. There is a great deal of interaction among us, from the managing partner to the intern.
I also chose Argos for its European aspect. We are truly European, with six offices covering eight countries. There is no equivalent. I’m Italian and French, living in Brussels and covering Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, so it really fits with my personality.
What value drives you?
In both my professional life and my personal life, I’m focused on personal relationships based on trust, loyalty and team spirit. I’m very proud of my relationships with my family and friends; we are like a team. They say I’m very loyal and reliable, and that’s very important to me!
In my work, this is reflected in the quality of my relationships both with people in-house and with stakeholders, as well as the stability and solidity of our group.
For me, it’s very important to transfer your knowledge and to help people grow. So I have taught private equity in schools, and I speak at professional conferences. I have also mentored some students and still support them in their professional life.
