Clearwater International advises MRS on its partnership with UK-based WSH

Clearwater International has advised MRS Group (MRS), a Paris-based provider of hospitality services to corporate clients, on its partnership with WSH, a UK-based company specialising in catering services.

Following the successful recent partnership with the Alain Ducasse Group, WSH France has partnered with MRS Group, enabling further growth for both businesses in France.

MRS was founded by Gilles Terzakou in 1989, who built the hugely successful business into what it is today. The company operates throughout France, with a corporate client base and a customer-centric approach. Gilles is very pleased with this partnership, which will help accelerate MRS’s growth. François Martinez, Deputy General Manager at MRS, has been working with Gilles for many years and will now take on the role of General Manager. The MRS team recognise the opportunity to share best practice with WSH France, accelerating their development in this sector.

WSH has been operating in France for 12 years, providing hospitality services for international customers. Through Musiam Paris, WSH now operates in a collection of unique locations including Le Louvre, Chateau de Versailles, Musée du Quai Branly, and Musée d’Orsay.

WSH France and MRS values are very much aligned. Their teams focus on fresh, seasonal, locally sourced food, prepared by skilled chefs on-site. The partnership will see WSH France invest in one of France’s leading caterers. MRS will continue providing excellent hospitality services throughout France, and retain its robust business infrastructure and back-of-house services. Personnel structures will remain in place for both WSH France and MRS.
