Alessia RH, an expert in the design of Human Resources strategies and tactics on the French market, has joined forces with KLB Group. This alliance strengthens their ability to provide more comprehensive support for all their customers’ support function transformation projects.
Greater capacity to support customers’ strategic HR challenges
As companies are facing rapid change in their activities, with the democratization of new technologies (AI, automation, robotization of processes, etc.) and a strong need to capitalize on knowledge, KLB Group continues to broaden its range of offerings for support functions by integrating business expertise and in-depth sector knowledge in the field of Human Resources.
Founded 30 years ago, Alessia RH has now 20 employees in France who will be joining KLB Group. With over 500 recruitments, 300 support assignments (consulting) and 500 professional interviews carried out for their customers (outsourcing), the company is developing its capacity to support its customers’ strategic HR challenges in a variety of business sectors.
KLB Group’s first acquisition
Founded in Paris in 1995 by Flavien Kulawik and Jean-Marc Le Breton, KLB Group gradually expanded in Europe in the 2000s (Barcelona, London, Cologne, Lyon, etc.) and then has expanded internationally from 2010 (Sao Paulo, Casablanca, Montreal, New York, etc.). KLB Group currently employs 750 people, is present in 6 countries and has achieved revenues of €50 million by 2023.
This acquisition marks KLB Group’s first external growth. The company strengthens its presence in France with two new offices, in Nantes and Paris.
“Working together with Alessia RH, while retaining this strong brand anchored in the market, enables us to support our customers on a wider perimeter and thus better support their growth and transformation projects”, emphasized Mathieu Dominguez, Managing Director of KLB Group. “I am delighted to welcome the Alessia RH team to KLB Group. With our international geographic presence and our multi-sector expertise, we will be able to support and accelerate Alessia RH’s growth. Their skills will enable us to raise the standards we wish to pass on to our teams and our customers.”
“We share a common corporate culture, common values and a strong taste for intrapreneurship”, adds Romain Briant, Staffing Director for France and Canada. “This acquisition is an opportunity to consolidate our skills, combine our different areas of expertise and deepen our close collaboration with our customers in France. We look forward to welcoming Alessia RH’s staff to our teams.”
François-Xavier Adam, Managing Director and Partner Alessia RH, adds: “We are delighted to be joining the KLB Group teams. Together, we’re going to develop a robust center of expertise to accompany, develop and support all our customers’ support function transformation projects. These are also great opportunities for our team to develop its skills and offerings, which we’ll be delighted to share with our customers.”
François-Xavier Adam comments on his experience of the deal: “I’d like to thank the Carmine Capital teams for their efficiency and professionalism. The success of this operation paves the way for growth opportunities and enhances value for all concerned.”
An operation generating growth levers
“Our positioning in the Human Resources sector, developed over several years, has enabled us to support François-Xavier Adam and the Alessia RH teams in their merger with KLB Group. I believe that this step marks a real strategic advance for all parties, both for Alessia RH in pursuing its development, and for KLB Group in structuring its recruitment and training division” enthuses Philippe Bloquet, Manager Carmine Capital.
