Victor de Couëssin


Victor focuses on Executive and Non-Executive Director searches for publicly listed and privately owned international companies.

In addition to contributing to General Management and CEO succession plan assignments, Victor serves clients in the world of Mobility (Automotive and Transportation), Industrial Services, Financial Services and Leisure & Hospitality and leads projects for profiles in high demand and low supply, such as Chief Information Officers, Chief Information Security Officers and Chief Data Officers.

He has a genuine interest for technology related matters as they strongly impact business models, operating models, the definition of functions and company strategies. He remains however vigilant about the consequences of the digital revolution on sustainability and is thus a strong supporter of the Slow Tech movement that not only sets boundaries for our dependency on digital devices but is also cautious about the frantic race for efficiency through technology.
