Four Partners

Fi.Solutions has four highly experienced partners, whose expertise and competence are truly complementary.

Jean-Marc Petit

Senior partner, Registered public accountant

Jean-Marc Petit, a graduate of the ICN, after initial experience as an auditor with Deloitte quickly went into private practice.

In 1981, he founded GMP with two partners. The firm developed a French and international client base offering a full range of integrated traditional services: accounting, payroll and company secretarial assistance.

In 1999, the firm joined the In Extenso network of accounting firms, part of the Deloitte group. During this period, the firm consolidated its expertise in dealing with international clients and extended its array of services to include the outsourcing of the accounting function of larger groups and assistance with the implementation of IT solutions and Management reporting and information systems.

In May 2008 Jean-Marc took his firm out of the Deloitte network and founded Fi.Solutions. He heads up business development and personally oversees a number of consulting and auditing assignments undertaken for the firm's French and international clients.
