« Joining Aon allows us to offer our customers new support solutions, especially internationally. This merger is a source of great pride for our teams and illustrates the relevance of our hyper specialist strategy since our creation. It is also an opportunity for us to benefit from additional human and digital resources in order to continue to respond as closely as possible to the specific needs of Tech companies. I am very pleased to personally accompany this new stage in the history of Apollo while retaining responsibility of operational structures. »

Nicolas Ibanez, Associé Largillière Finance :

« Christophe Gautié came to see us with a very clear roadmap: select and meet a very limited list of great broker candidates who will meet several requirements: ensuring sustainability in the teams, integrating an actor who has an asserted development strategy in the fast-growing and demanding tech sector, guaranteeing their clients the requirement of a high level of advice.
