After joining Boyden Executive Search in 2008, she created BCP Executive Search in 2010. Angélique Budin joined her very quickly.

    • Making companies’ and governing bodies’ directors more aware of compliance issues within the highly competitive international economic environment
    • Promoting compliance as an asset for development and competitiveness beyond the « purely defensive » vision
    • Contributing to building the competencies companies need in the field of compliance

    In parallel to helping companies set up their compliance teams, BCP Executive Search broadens its scope of action to recruiting risk managers, IP/IT experts, cybersecurity, senior data privacy talents as well as board administrators.
