"Like balloons, human beings have to change altitude if they wish to change direction in the winds of life."
Bertrand Piccard

As Valérie Tollet's career has soared to new heights, this quote has guided her personal philosophy. As a partner in Deloitte Luxembourg's Cross-Border Tax-Mergers & Acquisitions department, she has also helped others – clients as well as her team and colleagues – to "change altitude" over the past 14 years.

She is experienced in structuring deals for both listed and private clients, and particularly for pan-European and international real estate and infrastructure funds. She assisted many investors in establishing their real estate vehicles in Luxembourg – both regulated and non-regulated – and advised on several real estate acquisitions in Europe. Before joining Deloitte in October 2012, Valérie worked with PwC both in Brussels and Luxembourg.

Not only is Valérie a highly recognised tax leader in real estate, but she is also reputed for her strong skills in many tax fields, including private wealth management, private equity, financial services industry, infrastructure, and corporate tax. Valérie is an active member of several ALFI (Association of Luxembourg Fund Industry) Real Estate Investment Funds working groups.

Valérie is someone who truly inspires the next generation of women and men. Within her team and the 350 professionals in the tax department, she has created a team spirit, fostering innovation and positive competitiveness. She is an active member of the Deloitte Diversity Initiative and acts as the human resources lead for the M&A department.

When she joined Deloitte Luxembourg, she had an ambitious aim: for the real estate tax department to reach 15% growth each year. Fast forward three years: she succeeded in meeting this goal. Thanks to her interpersonal skills, in-depth understanding of clients and their industries, pragmatism, and sense of humour, she is a trusted adviser to her clients and a leader to her team. She continually builds these relationships to help Deloitte Luxembourg and her clients "change altitude" and soar to greater heights year-on-year.
