Anywr moves forward with its external growth strategy with the acquisition of Solantis

Paris, 17th January 2023 – Anywr strengthens its position as a leader in international recruitment and professional mobility with the acquisition of Solantis, a French specialist in the recruitment of top executives in the digital, IT and sales sectors.



The acquisition of Solantis is in line with the development and external growth logic initiated by Anywr's €80 million fundraising last June.

In a context of talent shortage and massive transformation of recruitment and work methods, the acquisition of Solantis enables Anywr to offer its clients in France a much wider choice of recruitment methods and to strengthen its local presence. Solantis and Anywr's offers complement each other to perfectly address the needs of our clients..

With major references and prestigious clients, Solantis, created in 2010, is now positioned as one of the leading firms in the Digital & IT sector in France thanks to its innovative recruitment solutions, particularly in RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing). Through this strategic alliance, Anywr enriches its range of recruitment services with an offer dedicated to the search for top management profiles in Digital, IT and Sales and integrates a team of 91 experienced people.

Solantis will now position itself as the spearhead of the Anywr group's head hunting/RPO offers and thus accelerate its international growth. Solantis will be able to draw on the group's power and its digital tools to offer its clients new services (client portal, API, talent applications).

"We are proud to welcome Solantis to the Anywr group. Solantis is a recognized player in the recruitment industry and its acquisition will enhance our portfolio of solutions for our clients" said Olivier Desurmont, founder and CEO of Anywr. Anatolie Fort, Nacima Id Bammou and Sarah Chelly will continue to lead Solantis with their teams of recruiters ensuring continuity of services to their clients and a successful integration into the Anywr group.

"Joining Anywr will allow us to offer our clients a set of 360° solutions and to support them in all their recruitment and mobility issues. The group's resources and technological and digital means represent new levers of acceleration for our clients. Anywr's approach and mindset match our values and we were immediately attracted by their commitment for excellence and innovation" added the Solantis partners.

After Expat Partners, Geneva Relocation in Q3 2021 and Antares in January 2022, Anywr confirms the continuation of its external growth strategy. Solantis is thus the ninth company to join the group since 2018.

This transaction was completed with the support of Oaklins France.
