It all began in 2013. Matthieu LE CLECH and Tan-Huy NGUYEN were business engineers at the time, and the two men had come to the same conclusion: recruitment services were often too long, too expensive, and their usefulness depended on the company's activity. The rest of the story is best told by Matthieu :

"The way we set up Pragmatan is not insignificant. I met Tan through work and we've kept in touch ever since. When it came to setting up the company, all I did was send him a text message offering to set up a business with me. I'll always remember that first day of setting up the business. We met up at Tan's place, we had no idea where to start, it was destabilising and memorable at the same time."

An evolving model 

If in the first months, Pragmatan wants to be a traditional recruitment firm, to operate for success, very quickly the new business leaders sniff out an innovative business, turned towards the ESN (aka Digital Services Company) model: delegating competence full-time, on-site recruitment directly at the client's premises. It will therefore be the arrival on the market of the delegation of recruiters, inspired by the American model RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing.)

And recognized work 

Today, Pragmatan is among the leaders of the RPO market, distinguished on several occasions for the quality of its services. ​


  • In 2018, Best recruitment firm in the "Executive Search" category according to Les Echos and the Statista agency

  • In 2020, rated "Excellent" in the Recruitment Consulting category according to Décideurs Magazine.

The direction 

In September 2020, Alison YVAN and Laury RAFFIER, in-house talents of Pragmatan, were appointed Executive Directors. These two appointments are part of a desire for strategic change for the company with the primary objectives of relaunching its activity, impacted by the health situation in 2020, as well as strengthening employee and customer loyalty.
