Clearwater International advises the shareholders and managers of Javlelo on the sale to European HR tech leaders Sympa and Recruitee, backed by US fund PSG Equity

Clearwater International has advised the founders and the shareholders of Javelo on their strategic alliance with PSG-backed Sympa and Recruitee to deliver tools for HR leaders at the forefront of digitising their teams.

Headquartered in Paris and founded in 2016 by Anne-Sophie Vasseur-Clément, David Guillermain, Guillaume Berthault and Gautier Machelon, Javelo has developed a robust performance management platform to help businesses develop a strong feedback culture. Javelo has since become an innovator in the European performance management space, offering a wide spectrum of tools from evaluation and appraisal to employee engagement, 360-degree feedback, objective tracking, and employee surveys. Today, Javelo has three offices and counts companies such as Transavia, Protectas, Domino’s Pizza, and Manpower among its customers.

Together, Javelo, Sympa, and Recruitee will aim to provide a portfolio of leading software tools for HR teams in small, medium-sized and larger businesses across strategic HR, people management, employee engagement, recruitment, and performance management. With over 6,000 customers across Europe, the UK, and the US, the company has more than 400 employees and aspires to develop solutions for innovative HR leaders. Notable brands such as Red Bull Media House, Breitling, BMW, and TNT have engaged Javelo, Sympa, and Recruitee to help them to acquire high-quality talent, safeguard employee data, and empower teams to make better strategic decisions.

Javelo’s founding managers and management will stay in place to accelerate the company’s growth thanks to the investment support of PSG and the expertise of both Sympa and Recruitee.
