Thanks to a deep understanding of the market, acquired via our network and our years of experience, we now provide an invaluable link between corporate governance and the diverse pool of talent available worldwide. 

Our expertise covers a wide variety of business sectors, including financial services (investments funds, investment banking, insurance, asset management, etc.) but also real estate, hospitality, distribution, healthcare, technology and manufacturing. We also have the integrity to decline an assignment if we cannot provide the necessary expertise or value added.

We build long-term, trust-based relationships with both our clients and the candidates we place, as illustrated by their continued loyalty, year after year.


Renovata & Company, who we have a strategic partnership with since June 2023, has a global reach with a presence in California, New York, the United Kingdom and Germany. Their complementary expertise lies in portfolio companies, especially in the technology space.
