    Founder and CEO Dominique Senequier shares personal thoughts and anecdotes from Ardian’s first decade: the factors that explain the company’s success, the achievements that make her most proud – and the doubters she proved wrong.

    Excellence, collaboration, confidence in relationships, transparency, and happiness in the workplace are all essential elements that have contributed to Ardian’s success in its first ten years of independence, Dominique explains in her interview.Dominique highlights Ardian’s strong team-working culture as a unique contributor to the company’s collective success, with the united purpose of building companies that last. In her words:

    I like human relationships, and I think human beings are the most fascinating ‘creation’ in the world.

    An indication of this success is both the AuM growth of 100 billion euros and the commensurate tripling of employees over the past decade. More so, the consistent harmony between Ardian and their shareholders which Dominique describes as a great accomplishment.

    Furthermore, Dominique shares both her biggest inspirational figure, advice to those in the industry, and what she is most proud of in Ardian’s first ten years.
