Benoît Hochet has over 15 years of experience in complex corporate turnaround situations across a broad range of sectors. Beginning his career in 2001 with a global consulting firm, he eventually caught the attention of a US-based turnaround and restructuring company, joining their ranks in their Paris office in 2007.
By 2016, Benoît had created his own advisory boutique dedicated to restructuring advisory with a hands-on approach. After successfully running the company for a number of years, he teamed up with Roland Berger in 2021 where he co-leads the Restructuring, Performance, Transformation & Transaction Competency Center, located in Paris.
His experience primarily revolves around the design and execution of turnaround and restructuring plans. Often holding advisory and leadership roles, his experience also encompasses operational and financial assistance to M&A transactions, post-merger integration, and distressed M&A support. Throughout his extensive career, Benoît has overseen multiple sectors including food processing, automotive, manufacturing and industrials, IT services, retail, vending and out-of-home media.
After graduating from the Institut Supérieur du Commerce in Paris, Benoît went on to earn an MBA in International Business from the University of South Carolina. A French-speaking national, Benoît has worked primarily in France, but has also worked abroad in Germany, Italy, Belgium, and the US.
