London, England — July 5, 2023 Renovata & Company and SEGALEN+ASSOCIES—two leading executive search, human resources services and private equity advisory firms—have joined forces to create a platform with operations in Europe, the UK and the US. The Renovata & Company and SEGALEN+ASSOCIES teams have worked together for more than 20 years and share a common approach to business as their clients’ trusted advisors. Over the past three years, the firms have performed more than 300 searches across Europe and the US—promoting diversity with nearly 30% women placed on boards and executive teams.

Renovata & Company and SEGALEN+ASSOCIES will offer an integrated experience to clients worldwide—with access to the best talent. This extends the reach of the platform and combines the personalized care of a boutique with a full range of services. The SEGALEN+ASSOCIES teams in Paris and London will continue to operate under their respected brand and will leverage the Renovata & Company platform to serve their clients across North America and Europe. The combined group will continue to serve investors and their portfolio companies at every stage of their lifecycle—from building investment teams and sourcing and assessing deals to placing transformational hires for C-suite functions of portfolio companies (including CEO, CFO, CRO, CHRO, CMO, CDO, CIO, etc.).

“I am delighted to join forces with the SEGALEN+ASSOCIES team. Their client-first and team-oriented approach is a fit for our culture,” says Thomas Jepsen, Renovata & Company cofounder and partner. “Their in-depth expertise and reputation in a strategic geography, France, combined with an international vision, is much sought-after by our clients.”

Together they will provide their clients with outstanding support—including leading the search for exceptional leaders; building high-performance, diverse teams; and offering tailor-made advice for sustainable business growth.

By working together, particularly in the US, we can better meet our clients’ executive search needs.”
