Under the leadership of Erick Berville, Finaxy has also been a key player in the
consolidation of a still fragmented market and we will continue to support and accelerate this external growth policy. We are delighted to support Erick and his teams who, beyond their performance, have demonstrated agility and a strong entrepreneurial culture.”
Erick Berville, Founder and CEO of Finaxy, added: “The Group Management and I would like to thank Equistone for the past six years. This close teamwork has enabled us to achieve common goals while respecting Finaxy’s human and entrepreneurial values, and to smartly position the group for strong and ambitious development. We have chosen to continue this journey with Ardian and we are delighted to welcome them. We share this DNA and it will enable us to pursue and accelerate our organic and external growth momentum. You can’t stop dreaming while you’re on the move.”
