Daniel Augereau is chairman and CEO of Synergie, the sixth-largest staffing firm in France. He trained as a technical blue-collar worker in the aeronautic industry and soon founded his first staffing firm, Europe Technique Assistance, in 1969. Ten years later, the company merged with another staffing firm, Synergie, resulting in the launch of the Synergie brand. In 2015 the group further developed the international business resulting in double-digit revenue growth rates in Belgium, Italy and Spain.
