I am an Associate Partner with Penta and work primarily in the financial services division. I started my career as a fixed income trader and then a salesman with banks in France, Germany and the Middle East. Over the last 25 years, I worked in asset management, in the beginning as an account manager with Dresdner Bank for central bank mandates. After heading a large asset management company in Brazil for over 4 years, I specialized in financial market regulation and represented Allianz Global Investors as the Brussels representative for the Company.
The last 8 years were spent in Brussels as Head of Public Policy for the whole Allianz Group and Head of the Brussels Allianz Representative Office. For Hume Brophy, I helped an asset management trade association with their public engagement policy in Brussels.
