Laurent is an associate at Oaklins KBC Securities in Belgium. As a member of the execution team, he manages all aspects of the deal process, whether in M&A or ECM, across a variety of industries.
Prior to joining the firm in 2023, Laurent started his career as an analyst at the investment holding company Floridienne, where he assisted executive and financial departments along the different stages of M&A processes. As such, he worked on multiple M&A transactions involving the likes of Biobest Group, SNAM Group and IKA Group.
