Stéphane Piot

Partner, expert in transaction services

We are starting to see the impact of AI on data centres, especially when it comes to due diligence projects and forecasting operating costs and returns. I enjoy looking at the technical capabilities and requirements for AI, how it will be relevant and how it is going to affect people.

Stéphane is a Partner in our Paris office and has been working in the telecoms, media and technology (TMT) sector for more than 20 years. He has led and managed projects on strategic assessments and business planning, as well as regulatory projects and due diligence assignments.

In the past five years, Stéphane has worked on more than 50 due diligence projects on a wide range of topics, including fibre carve-outs; fibre operator financing in dense and rural areas; and tower operator, submarine cable and data-centre assessments. He has extensive experience of NGA-related topics, fixed and mobile cost models and margin-squeeze assessment, and has conducted various 4G and 5G spectrum valuation projects.

Stéphane holds an Engineering degree from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Bretagne (France), an MSc in Telecommunications from University College, London (UK), and a French Mastère Degree in Management of New Technologies from the Economic and Business School, HEC.
