He will also be in charge of all Groupe learn­ing, de­vel­op­ment pro­grams and group cul­ture. New York based, he will join the Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee and re­port di­rectly to Arthur Sadoun, Chair­man and CEO of Publi­cis Groupe.

An­dré is cur­rently Pres­i­dent In­ter­na­tional of Tbwa\world­wide and has in his ex­ist­ing re­mit the man­age­ment of the com­pany’s col­lec­tive “peo­ple” strat­egy, cov­er­ing the key ar­eas of learn­ing, ca­reer de­vel­op­ment, top ta­lent re­cruit­ment and the cul­ture at large.

“Em­manuel’s ap­pointe­ment is an im­por­tant step in our am­bi­tion to be­come the mar­ket leader in mar­ket­ing and busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion. Bring­ing a CTO at the top level of our or­gan­i­sa­tion was crit­i­cal at a mo­ment when our peo­ple need to em­bark on our trans­for­ma­tion jour­ney. With Mau­rice Lévy, we strongly be­lieved it was es­sen­tial to en­trust this role to some­one who knows our busi­ness in­side out and un­der­stands the chal­lenges our peo­ple are fac­ing ev­ery day. Ta­lent is the Groupe’s top pri­or­ity and big­gest as­set. Em­manuel will have an im­por­tant role to play in all the ini­tia­tives that are build­ing our Groupe cul­ture while at­tract­ing, re­ward­ing, re­tain­ing and train­ing the best and most col­lab­o­ra­tive team in the in­dus­try to serve our clients even bet­ter than be­fore,” said Arthur Sadoun.
