In 2002 he moved to the recruitment sector and joined the Legal and Tax Division at Michael Page International. Arnaud’s position at the Alexander Hughes Group as Senior Headhunter led him to work with law firms and the legal and tax divisions of leading French and international companies. During his time with the Alexander Hughes Group, Arnaud created a Tax & Legal Practice and specialised in recruiting lawyers, tax specialists, legal directors, tax directors and Partner and Associate lawyers.

In 2014, Arnaud decided to go into partnership with Romain Boisnard, Tillerman Executive Search founder, and create the Legal, Tax and Compliance Division.
