Reporting to Henri Marcoux, the firm's deputy chief executive officer, Perréard will be responsible for developing and implementing the Group's financial strategy.

Prior to that, he worked at the Accor Group for nine years, where she held several positions ranging from head of Group Consolidation to chief financial officer of one of the firm's units. She began her career as a financial auditor at Ernst & Young.
Henri Marcoux, deputy chief executive officer of Tikehau Capital, said: "Laure's experience in a listed company that went through strong geographic expansion is an undeniable asset in the context of Tikehau Capital's growth dynamic. Her arrival strengthens the Group's profile, whose solid financial structure with €2.3bn of shareholders' equity is a differentiating asset in support of the structuring objectives set for 2022."
