Paris, 24 February 2022 – Grant Alexander, the independent French HR consulting and services group and a key partner to organisations and leaders seeking to improve their performance, has joined InterSearch, one of the top international executive search organisations, with more than 90 offices in over 50 countries around the world.




Following a rigorous selection process that lasted several months, Grant Alexander has finalised an agreement with InterSearch. The decision to join forces with this powerful network was based on multiple factors which were essential to the group’s decision:

  • It has existed for more than 30 years.
  • It has widespread geographic coverage. 
  • It works with local partners of the highest quality, who are experts in their fields and their markets and who share the same quality standards.
  • Its members are united by shared values and are committed to CSR (corporate social responsibility).
  • Lastly, it is a source of innovation and enrichment of members’ practices.

This alliance is an integral part of the group’s international development strategy which it launched in March 2021 with the opening of its first African office, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, to cover the continent’s French-speaking countries. With InterSearch, whose members include executive search and HR consulting firms, Grant Alexander will be able to offer support and guidance to its clients (including large groups and their subsidiaries, as well as mid-sized firms) on subjects ranging from talent acquisition to skills development, and this with the same level of service, everywhere in the world.

Grant Alexander will be InterSearch’s partner in France.
