Yves Legrux, Investments Manager, BB Energy

“I joined AMR as an intern and spent six months in the London office before going back to finish my studies in Paris. Those first few months at AMR taught me teamwork as well self-drive and entrepreneurship. Despite my young age and inexperience, I was given significant responsibility on various projects.

On graduation, I joined a small private equity firm in Paris but fund raising did not go as planned and I was given the opportunity to rejoin AMR as a junior consultant. Two years on, I was promoted to senior consultant working on a wide range of acquisition and strategy projects. This gave me wide experience and exposure, allowing me to join the Trafigura group. I currently look after mergers and acquisitions for Puma Energy in Africa (the oil mid and downstream arm of Trafigura) and am currently relocating to become the managing director of one of our affiliates in Sub-Saharan Africa.

I genuinely believe that AMR has given me the opportunity to understand and focus on issues while also helping me present them clearly at board level. To my mind, AMR is the greatest training centre one can dream of. I have always believed in the quality of the AMR product and am always pleased to recommend AMR. Who knows, I might rejoin AMR once again in the future.”
