We are extremely happy to announce that Laurent Carlier, who started working at Ernest Partners in May last year, is joining the partnership as a shareholder from Oct 1, 2023. Laurent will lead the Real Estate team of Ernest Partners. He brings our partnership a considerable experience and market recognition in financing and real estate.
