In 2010, Sébastien established GenSearch following a successful seven-year tenure as the Europe Life Sciences Team Leader at a prominent global executive search consultancy. His wealth of experience and expertise in the field played a crucial role in laying the foundation for GenSearch’s growth and success.
Sébastien’s educational background includes graduating from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Physique de Strasbourg in 1996, where he pursued studies in Physics Engineering with a specialization in biomedical engineering. He gained valuable experiences through his involvement with prestigious biology research centres such as the Institut Pasteur, Inserm, and IRCAD before embarking on his professional journey as a biomedical engineer in a French military hospital.
Following this, Sébastien transitioned to the private sector and worked with companies focused on medical equipment maintenance and control. Initially joining CGEM, an entity associated with the prominent French Private Hospital Group, Générale de Santé (later acquired by GE Healthcare), he later became part of AMTECH Médical, taking on the role of Sales and Technical Manager.
As his career progressed, Sébastien assumed the position of BU Manager at Alten, an engineering and IT consulting group. During this period, recruitment became a significant aspect of his role, prompting him to shift his focus toward HR-related matters. This decision led him to join a renowned global executive search firm, where he played a vital role in talent acquisition for the industry.
