Calendar icon 26th June 2023

SEGALEN+ASSOCIES and Renovata & Company, two independent executive search firms, are combining to create a global platform with operations in Europe, the UK and the USA. Forming a joint team of nearly 100 like-minded professionals focused on great client, candidate and investment outcomes.

SEGALEN+ASSOCIES and Renovata & Company, two leading executive search, HR services and PE advisory boutiques are delighted to announce their combination.


The SEGALEN+ASSOCIES and Renovata & Company teams have been working together for over 20 years, sharing a common approach to the business and aiming to be their clients’ trusted advisors. Over the past three years, the two firms, which already work together regularly, have carried out more than 300 searches across Europe and the US, promoting diversity with almost 30% of women placed on Boards and into executive teams.


SEGALEN+ASSOCIES and Renovata & Company will offer an integrated experience to clients worldwide, with access to the best talent. This extends the global reach of the platform while combining the personalized care of a boutique with a full range of services from an international player.


The SEGALEN+ASSOCIES teams in Paris and London will continue to operate under their highly respected brand and will now leverage the reach of the Renovata & Company platform to service their clients across North America or the rest of Europe. The group will continue to serve investors and their portfolio companies at every stage of their life cycle: from building investment teams to sourcing and assessing deals to transformational hires, particularly for all the C-suite functions of portfolio companies (CEO, CDO, CFO, CHRO, CMO, CIO, etc.).


“I am delighted to join forces with the SEGALEN+ASSOCIES team. Their client-first approach and team-oriented approach are a fit for our culture. The SEGALEN+ASSOCIES team brings us its in-depth expertise and reputation in a strategic geographic country, France, combined with an international vision much sought-after by our clients,” explains Thomas Jepsen, co-founder and partner in Renovata & Company.

“We have complementary skills and share a mutual trust with Renovata & Company, the fruit of regular collaborations over the past five years. We are convinced that this strategic partnership will benefit our customers.
