Key player in recruitment, interim management and temporary staffing, FAB Group aims to accelerate the deployment of its service offering and increase its territorial coverage.
FAB Group, multi-specialist recruitment agency and temporary employment player
Founded in 2007 in Nantes by current CEO Yann Pelvet, FAB Group is historically recognized for its expertise in banking & insurance. Over the past 15 years, the Group has extended its offering to other sectors: finance, auditing & accounting, IT & digital, industry, real estate & construction, etc.
The Group has today 9 offices (8 in France and 1 in Luxemburg) and carries out over 2,000 recruitments a year, thanks to a team of around 100 employees, each working exclusively in a dedicated business sector.
Recruitment: a major challenge for companies
“FAB Group operates in a deep-rooted market that responds to one of the main issues facing companies today, namely the shortage of manpower and the associated complexity of recruiting” comments Yann Pelvet, founder and CEO of FAB Group.
Alongside Yann Pelvet, who remains the major shareholder, and key executives who are investing on this occasion, UI Investissement supports the Group’s development project, becoming the first investor to acquire a stake in FAB Group.
New momentum in a highly competitive market
UI Investissement’s capital investment will enable FAB Group’s teams to deploy their ambitious development plan, which is based on four main priorities:
- Consolidate its historical expertise,
- Continuing to diversify into other industries (health-pharma, legal-HR),
- Strengthen its territorial coverage,
- Develop new offerings in response to changes in the employment market.
Yann Pelvet looks back on the experience of this transaction: “I was very happy to be able to carry out this operation with Carmine Capital. The Carmine team worked with me efficiently, with an educational approach (because it was a first for me), with professionalism, and our contacts were always very pleasant, even at the most tense moments. And with success!”
“We are delighted to support FAB Group to raise funds from UI Investissement. The opening up of its capital will give FAB Group new momentum, enabling it to strengthen its position in the highly competitive recruitment market”, shares Anne-Laure Beuriot, founding partner of Carmine Capital.
