Arnaud has 30 years of experience, having developed his career in three phases: starting as a consultant, moving to CFO, and then serving as CEO of industrial international companies.
Arnaud is an Associate Director in our Paris office, having rejoined Arthur D. Little in 2019 after 13 years working as an executive in CEO and CFO positions for large industrial and international companies.
As an executive he has managed many crises and other challenging situations:
- The 2008 financial crisis, as CFO of ArcelorMittal Long Carbon
- The 2015 energy crisis resulting from the oil-price drop, as CEO of ArcelorMittal Tubular
- The brutal drop of Nickel in 2007, as CFO of ArcelorMittal Stainless (now Aperam)
- Turning around many operations and plants in financial stress in various geographies (the US, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Eastern and Western Europe)
Before becoming an executive, Arnaud worked for 12 years as a consultant at McKinsey and Arthur D. Little, where he led large turnaround and operational improvement programs, in addition to traditional strategy and due-diligence assignments. He worked in the private equity, high-tech manufacturing (chips, electronics, space, aeronautics, defense, automation, mid-size and large equipment manufacturers) and process (paper, cement, chemical, steel) industries.
