“Take risks and be bold”
7th February 2019, at La Maison de Famille Louis Vuitton
Virginie has not got to where she is today by sitting quietly on the sidelines and playing it safe. Starting with her decision to enter the male-dominated world of investment banking, she has always operated outside of her comfort zone. After becoming the youngest senior managing partner in Lazard’s history, Virginie joined one of her clients: Eurazeo. Here she has helped transform the century-old holding company into a European private equity leader. Just when Virginie was poised to take the top job, she moved to New York to carve out a role for Eurazeo in the highly-competitive North American market. One of private equity’s most powerful female bosses shared her insight with LeadHers on why women need to face their fears and take more chances.
