Career Adventure with Lionel Catala
Our interviews about career in Private Equity are back!
Our first session of the year will be a very special one and only live.
We invited Lionel Catala, a representative of one of Family Offices present in Luxembourg to talk about this very special group of investors and the uniqueness of the experience of working for them.
Lionel studied economics at ICHEC in Brussels and couldn’t wait to start his career journey. It began at a company which was later taken over by Cap Gemini while doing his Master’s Degree. There he was in charge of private and public clients to implement ERP software’s.
After a couple of years in Belgium Lionel moved to New-York to work in the Hedge-Fund industry. Coming back to Europe years later, he quickly started a wealth-management company with some associates which he successfully led for 11 years.
When one day a friend of Lionel started the first Fin-Tech PE and asked him to join, he did not hesitate. That PE invested in financial technology and service companies focused on front, middle and back office.
In 2016 Lionel didn’t miss another exciting opportunity and became a Family Officer for a Belgian family and director for their holdings.
