Samuel Tamagnaud graduated from EBS Paris in 1993 and started his recruitment career with Page Interim, spending 4 years there – firstly as a consultant specialised in finance, then as a manager and finally as Regional Director. In 1999 he created the Partner Group, Partner Interim and James Partner, a recruitment firm specialising in middle management. In 2006 the company was bought by a Japanese group – Staff Service (N° 3 on the Japanese staffing market). In 2009 Staff Service decided to withdraw from the French market and Samuel and his former associates took back control the firm. In 2012 the firm was finally sold outright to the Fed group. Samuel’s relationship with Morgan Philips Group began in 2013 when he set up Morgan Philips Executive Search and Fyte in Asia, based in Singapore. In August 2015 Samuel took over Morgan Philips Group activities in France, working alongside Jean Kerckhove.
