Global management consulting firms A.T. Kearney, Monitor Deloitte and Oliver Wyman have added new partners to their leadership ranks in France. All new partners – Delphine Bourrilly, Étienne Sebaux, Safia Limousin, Olivier Perrin, Tarik Ouahmed, Damien Renaudeau and Mathieu Sébastien – are based in the Paris office of the consultancies.

A.T. Kearney

Delphine Bourrilly joined A.T. Kearney in 2009, after previously serving Swiss private bank UBS. She specialises in operating models, organisation design and human capital, as well as large transformation programmes. The newly promoted partner works predominantly across four sectors – financial services, retail & distribution, utilities and hospitality & tourism.

Étienne Sebaux began his career in 2001 as a consultant at A.T. Kearney. In 2006, he joined a rival consulting firm (Alma Consulting Group; today Ayming) where he worked as a procurement consultant. In 2010, he returned to A.T. Kearney as a manager in the Paris office, after which he was elected a Director in 2014. In his partner role, Sebaux is tasked with leading large strategic transformation in the supply chain and operations domain. 

Safia Limousin joined A.T. Kearney in March this year from EY, where she was a partner in the Big Four firm’s Advisory practice and head of the French Power & Utilities practice and of the Operations practice for Western Europe & North Africa. She began her career within the Suez group as a design engineer, then joined Deloitte Consulting in 1999, where she worked on organisation and reengineering engagements in the European energy sector. Prior to her spell at EY, Limousin had a thirteen year tenure at Roland Berger, where she was latterly a partner.

The appointments of Bourrilly, Sebaux and Limousin take A.T. Kearney’s partner team in France to seventeen.
