Managing Director Expat Partners

I have been lucky enough to be living and working in France for over 25 years now, during this time I have developed a deep understanding of the French culture and business practices. My professional experiences in the areas of marketing, tax and international human resources consulting, have been with multi-national companies such as IBM, TRW, Barclays and KPMG LLP.

As a result of which I have built a reliable network with members of the French public administration. Through my own personal experience, and experience helping many international assignees who have come to live and work in France I have built a firm that fully understands the difficulties facing not only the expatriate but also the company regarding the multiple layers of compliance for a foreign assignment.

I founded Expat Partners in 2003, initially to provide French immigration services, today I am lucky to have an amazing team which has grown to include a branch office in Bangalore and a representative office in Shenzhen, where we all share common values of:
