Pascal Bohu, Managing Partner

Pascal
Recruitment is a fragile and subtle art. It often involves an emotional charge and important human and financial implications.

Holding a diploma of Master in Law and graduated from Neoma Business School, he started his career within the Marketing Direction of an important financial institution, but rapidly chose to head to human resources.

He thus entered the recruitment business in 1991 and was immediately won over by the broadness of this profession. Following a first experience in an international recruitment firm, he opted for a smaller structure. In 1999 he decided to join Sirca Executive Search whose image and positioning seemed to him both strong and meaningful.

Today, as Managing Partner of Sirca, Pascal develops his activity in all aspects of the insurance market, as well as for financial institutions and financial corporate functions in other sectors. He also leads confidential searches in the healthcare and social protection sectors.

His commitment extends to the defense and promotion of the profession of executive search,either within the French professional organization Syntec Conseil en Recrutement, notably in its Ethics Committee, or the AESC (Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants) that Sirca joined in 2008.

Anne Debieuvre, Director

Anne Debieuvre
The right candidate is not simply the one who meets every single requirement on the job description but the one who has that "special thing" that makes a match between the candidate and the company.

This conviction has guided Anne Debieuvre for 25 years.

After starting her career in human resource, Anne discovers the recruitment consulting business in independent recruitment firms before managing during 7 years the French subsidiary of a large international network.

Anne is specialized in mid-size companies and family owned businesses in varied sectors: Agrofood, food and cosmetics engineering, specialized retail (B2C and B2B), residential construction, environment, fine chemicals. Her standard practice: Accepting only a single client per market segment in order to offer the largest candidate sourcing pool.

Recruitment is a key issue for a small or mid-size company. A wrong hire impacts such companies more than it does to large groups. This is why Anne thinks that the building up of teams, an intimate knowledge of the client's strategy, a long term partnership are essential aspects for ensuring a successful recruitment.

In 10 years from now, the professional landscape will have changed. Therefore the knowledge of a wide range of sectors and functions will be critical to bring a new vision in the search for candidates and ultimately to create value for the client.

Masters' Degrees in Law and HR Management, Anne is also a Certified Coach and is particularly interested in the integration of high level athletes in companies.
