ENTREPRENEUR & INVESTOR
After 12 years’ experience in senior management positions in large corporates (bank, logistics and environment) in the UK and then in France, Arnaud created Locken (www.locken.eu) in 2003, with two partners. It soon became a European leader in the security industry.
In 2007, he acquired Elo Mobile, that later merged with Vehco, and developed it to become the 4th player in the fleet telematics industry (www.vehcogroup.com). Overall, this group employed close to 150 employees with sales in excess of £35m in 11 countries. Between 2018 and 2020, he successively sold these businesses.
Arnaud is now a full time professional investor alongside private equity firms and he supports many start-ups through his active role in the business angel industry in Europe. He is also a non-executive director in various small & mid-sized family businesses.
Arnaud is a very competitive bridge player and a keen sportsman.
