PARIS / BERLIN, September 23, 2021 – MoovOne joins CoachHub to create the world leader of digital coaching. The two companies share a common vision: to democratize digital coaching within organizations worldwide.
“A gradual reopening of offices and the implementation of hybrid working models challenge companies around the world to adapt to new needs of employees in terms of well-being, management, and leadership,” said Yannis Niebelschuetz, co-founder and CEO of CoachHub. “By joining forces, we are further accelerating our global growth and development – offering the most comprehensive global online coaching platform for everyone which satisfies the needs of each customer.”
Business coaching is a fast growing industry worldwide. The 2020 ICF Global Coaching Study found that the number of managers and leaders using coaching skills is estimated to have risen by almost half (46%) in the last five years. Together, CoachHub and MoovOne will be even better equipped to respond and anticipate the new needs of this market, particularly around company and individual transformation.
Two European market leaders unite
Both founded by siblings, CoachHub and MoovOne share the same culture of strong family values and a desire to deliver the highest quality of service. Both companies also have a firm commitment to world-class data security, which is the basis for the trust necessary for successful coaching.
“Our culture and synergies decisively bring us together as a combined company with more than twice the impact. Together as one entity, we’ll energetically move forward in the same direction, taking digital coaching to the next dimension globally,” says Hugo Manoukian, CEO and co-founder of MoovOne.
Bringing crucial strengths and a shared vision
Leveraging the latest innovation and technology of both CoachHub and MoovOne, the combined company will be in an even better position to transform coaching and development in organizations around the globe, helping increase productivity, employee engagement and retention.
A pioneer and leader in digital coaching in France since 2015, MoovOne has built up strong expertise and offers a wide range of coaching programmes to more than 200 clients, including 60% of CAC 40 firms, such as L’Oreal, Engie, Orange and AXA.

CoachHub has built a team of leading behavioral scientists supported by a world-class Coaching Lab headed by European luminary Prof. Dr. Jonathan Passmore, and over 2,500 coaches across 70 countries and 60 languages.
CoachHub is determined to leverage the talent and expertise of all MoovOne employees to bring maximum value to their clients and expand their market reach. Together, the combined organizations will have more than 500 employees by the end of 2021, and the recruitment pace will accelerate further in 2022 and beyond.
