About us

A lasting partnership

We’ve been helping companies achieve their strategic objectives since 2001.

This longevity in the business is both our guarantee of quality, and our best reference.

We have been engaged in developing expertise in direct search ever since the very start and this is how we came to specialize in Executive Search.

To better support our clients, we have gradually introduced talent management consulting, in a broadening of our activity.

Our entrepreneurial spirit has led us to test out a variety of services aimed at facilitating business for our clients.

To meet the international needs of those clients, Talengis has, since 2012, been a shareholder in InterSearch – one of the world’s top 10 global players in Executive Search, established in more than 50 countries.

In 2013, strategic consulting became our strategic activity.

We focus on human levers affecting change and performance, to help businesses achieve their goals.

The value we provide is tangible:

  • Reducing human risk
  • Improving performance
  • Improving competitiveness

Our core purpose is to help companies sustainably improve their financial results.


Our core values
