Tell us about your professional background?
I joined the International Tax team of KPMG Luxembourg in September 2006 after completing a master’s degree in business administration with a specialization in tax at a French business school (EDHEC). From the very first day, I was working with clients from all over the world. I also value KPMG’s culture of sharing knowledge and opinions openly. The great team spirit has remained throughout all these years!
Why KPMG Luxembourg?
"Over the past 12 years, KPMG has given me great opportunities to not only grow my career but also develop personally. This is the very reason why KPMG’s experience is unique: there are unlimited possibilities for development and learning. It is only a matter of discovering and choosing which path fits each of us best."
What do you do at KPMG Luxembourg?
"Today, I work as a Partner in the Transfer Pricing department. In the past, however, I also got the chance to work in a KPMG office in Houston. This two-year experience showed me a different culture, different ways of working, and new approaches to clients. Throughout my KPMG journey, I’ve met very interesting people who I still have the pleasure of working with today. Having such an international network enriches my work experience and I’m happy that KPMG has offered me such opportunities."
What advice would you give someone who would like to join KPMG?
"When I reflect on my experience so far, I realise that the most important thing is to be curious and open-minded and also to grasp any opportunity that is given to you. KPMG gives us the chance and support to dare to try and grow accordingly."
