Olivier Levenfiche

CEO, The Levoltan Corporation

For me, nothing is ever too much trouble when it comes to taking care of my clients. I thoroughly enjoy building and nurturing close relationships, and this leads to opportunities to engage in deeply meaningful conversations. By gaining an in-depth understanding of my clients and listening to their concerns, I am able to reflect and generate new ideas to support their personal and business aspirations.

It is very satisfying to see a company grow knowing that I have assisted in that growth. Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with clients at different stages of the business lifecycle ranging from promising entrepreneurs to blossoming SMEs. I particularly enjoy generating growth strategies and formulating business frameworks to help achieve success, whilst providing general commercial advice including corporate governance matters.

If you’re interested…
I joined Gerard Edelman fresh out of university in 1981 where I studied Economics and Accountancy, before qualifying as Chartered Accountant in 1987. I was admitted to the partnership in 1989, at the same time founding the Business Services Department. I currently sit on the firm’s Executive Board and head the firm’s Human Resources & Payroll Services and Statutory Compliance Departments.

What is the most daring thing you’ve ever done?
Driven a motocross bike at stupid miles per hour on holiday…without a helmet!

What one piece of advice would you give your 10-year-old self?
Believe that you can achieve anything you want to and don’t hold back because you doubt yourself.

If you could have dinner with anyone who would it be?
Don Henley of The Eagles – I love their music and he seems like such a great guy who must have plenty of great stories to share.
