The Morgan Philips Group has acquired Hudson’s search, selection, and talent management operations in Europe.
The proposed agreement covers operations in the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Poland, as well as the network of related operations in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Czech Republic, Ukraine and Slovakia.
Alexis de Bretteville, CEO of Hudson Europe, said: “Morgan Philips is a dynamic, ambitious and highly technological human resources company that has grown rapidly since its founding in 2013. We are delighted at the prospect to work in an entrepreneurial environment, with a history of disruption in the recruiting and executive search market. “
Bretteville also expressed satisfaction with the agreement because “it gives us more freedom to undertake new things, so Hudson was listed on the stock exchange and with this step we became a private company”. The CEO of Hudson had already begun work with the founders of Morgan Philips twenty years prior: “Four years ago they set up this company, which is very innovative and has known how to apply new technologies to the search processes”. At present, Philips is present in 13 countries and has a workforce of 250 people, which is now combined with the 350 people working in Hudson distributed in 10 countries.
Charles-Henri Dumon, CEO and founder of the Morgan Philips Group, has stated that “this is an acquisition that represents a substantial change for Morgan Philips as it will allow us to expand our business and offer services in new markets, as well as improve our ability to respond to efficiently and quickly to our customers. “
