"The accomplishment of the benefit of others does not involve sacrificing our own happiness – quite the contrary."
As Valérie Tollet's career has soared to new heights, this quote has guided her professional attitude. Throughout her time as a partner in Deloitte Luxembourg's cross-border tax, mergers and acquisitions department, she has made empowering her teams and helping them to accomplish their aspirations one of her priorities over the past 15 years.
She is experienced in structuring deals for both listed and private clients, particularly for pan-European and international real estate and infrastructure funds. She has 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 for another Big 4 firm in both 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 equity, the financial services industry, and corporate tax. Valérie is an active member of several Association of Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI) real estate investment funds working groups.
Valérie is someone who truly inspires the next generation of women and men and encourages intrapreneurship. Within her team and the 400 professionals in the tax department, she has created a spirit that fosters innovation and positive competitiveness. In that sense, she leads the Innovation Initiative within Deloitte's tax department, she is an active member of the Deloitte Diversity Initiative, and acts as the human resources lead for the M&A department.
Valérie's commitment to innovation goes beyond the walls of Deloitte, as she co-leads Mind and Market in Luxembourg – a recent initiative aiming to connect ambitious entrepreneurs and project holders with the market.
When she joined Deloitte Luxembourg, she had an ambitious aim: that the real estate tax department will reach 15% growth each year. Fast forward four years and 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 achieve their goals and soar to greater heights year after year
