Cingeto means ‘warrior’ in the ancient Gaulish language. The Gauls united vast territories (now Europe) and represented a uniquely progressive time in world history.
We provide innovative talent solutions based on anthropological methods that unify your talent needs with the goals and culture of your organization.
Humans are rich, emotional, intelligent, and complex. We place them at the heart of your business strategy to create a thriving constellation of talent.
We believe diversity goes beyond gender or physical appearance. Diversity is about the inclusion of people with varied educational backgrounds, personality types, cultural references, life experiences, interests, socio-economic backgrounds or physical abilities.
Cingeto respects all humans and their unique experiences. We have a strong performance history in finding richly diverse candidates, building highly functioning diversified teams, and facilitating cross-cultural and cross-national training for our clients.

Nicolas Hine is co-founder and head of finance & operations of Cingeto. He started his career in Public Accounting at KPMG and PwC in Paris. Before co-founding Cingeto, he moved his way up, holding progressively more senior operational and corporate finance roles for multinational groups in South Korea, France, and the US.
Nicolas is business-oriented and naturally curious with a strong background in Finance on both the controlling and the auditing sides. Finance, internal controls, processes, risk assessment, reporting, and analysis are his forte but he also always had a strong interest in cutting-edge technologies and innovation. He developed a natural ability for business strategy as a result.
Nicolas holds a degree in East Asian Literature, Languages, and Civilizations from Paris VII and as well as a Master of Business from ISC Paris and speaks fluent French, English, and Korean. At Cingeto, he is able to utilize all of his past experiences and what he learned throughout the years. He enjoys being a partner to organizations and a part of their adventures and challenges.
Igor Chechushkov is a resident scholar at Cingeto. He graduated in 2005 with a degree in History from the South Ural State University, Russia. He started his career as a researcher but later had to switch jobs to navigate the turbulent Russian market. In a few years, he became the person-in-charge of the Information Services department in a large construction firm specialized in airport buildings. However, he never ended his romance with academia and spent vacations doing archaeological fieldwork in remote areas of Eurasia. The risky decision to join the Ph.D. program at the University of Pittsburgh led him to abandon his professional IT-career, yet created an opportunity to become a full-time social scientist.
At Pitt, Igor studied how and why small human communities abandoned their independence to create large political entities that would later become the modern states. In 2013 he received a Ph.D. degree in History from the Russian Academy of Sciences and in 2018 the honor of being called a Doctor of Philosophy in Anthropology from the University of Pittsburgh. Currently, with his colleagues from the Smithsonian Institution, he is studying the problem of environmental and technological sustainability and searching for ways to deliver scholarly knowledge about sustainability to the modern communities. His collaboration with Cingeto provides a unique opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the social and technological processes that have been unfolding throughout the history of humankind and how they may be projected into the future.
