Notre histoire

KEYTAL International has now run more than 15 years… Born in 2005, we chose our name in reference to « KEY TALents » we seek for our clients. we search for our clients, as we focus on Executives Leaders, and/or sharp and rare profiles. By doing so, we also made a wink at our Spanish friends («¿hola, qué tal ?»).

Our team of senior professionals remained the same over the years. It is known as very experienced in Search as well as Coaching.

We all are Managers and Top Executives who had a successful first career in top international Executive Search Agencies and/or large international Companies. Our research assistants and research partners are multilingual and multicultural.

Each of us decided to join in KEYTAL International to develop its career in a more entrepreneurial way.

Based both in Lyon and Paris since the beginning, our “playground” is usually France, Europe… and beyond.

More than 15 years of existence...
