Born in October 1964 in Brussels (French speaking side) and raised in a very international environment, Arnold started his professional career in 1991 in Frankfurt am Main at the Economist Newspaper where he would stay after being posted in London, Lisbon and Paris until 2009, when he joined the Financial Times at their office in the City in London.
Specialised in brand and print & digital subscriptions marketing rather than working on the Editorial side. Arnold’s maternal grandparents were the owners of L’Impartial Financier, the number one Financial newspaper in Belgium until the Second World War.
Graduated in Marketing from EPHEC in Brussels and holder of a Full Time Master in Business & Administration (MBA) from Henley Management College (UK), where he studied from 1988 to 1990.
Arnold is based in Lisbon since 2000, where he now lives permanently since 2014 with his family. Always sportive, Arnold enjoys a round of golf in sunny Lisbon, playing tennis and a bike ride in the Serra de Sintra.
Last September in Lisbon is his first novel.
