Publicis Groupe, a global leader in marketing and communications, has announced significant appointments within its financial leadership team, marking a strategic shift in its executive roster.
Loris Nold, appointed as Chief Financial Officer effective February 2024, is set to join the group’s managing body, the Directoire, following the decision of the Supervisory Board on November 22nd, amplifying his pivotal role within the organization.
To fortify and bolster the Global Financial Team, Publicis Groupe unveiled the elevation of Bruno Teppaz, currently serving as Group Controller, to the esteemed position of Deputy CFO, expanding his sphere of responsibilities within the organization.
Moreover, the conglomerate disclosed the return of Jean-Michel Bonamy to Publicis as the Deputy CFO, entrusted with leading the Investor Relations domain. Bonamy brings a wealth of experience, having previously steered Investor Relations for the group for four years until the onset of 2019.
Both Teppaz and Bonamy will report directly to Loris Nold, reinforcing the financial leadership hierarchy.
In tandem with these appointments, Alessandra Girolami, VP of Investor Relations & Strategic Financial Planning, will be bidding adieu to Publicis Groupe post the publication of the Full Year 2023 Financial Results.
Girolami, lauded for her instrumental contributions during critical junctures, notably around the acquisition of Epsilon, is slated to embark on a new role at a leading international company. She will ensure a seamless transition period alongside Bonamy, who is scheduled to commence his responsibilities on December 1st, preceding his full-fledged role assumption in February.
Arthur Sadoun, Chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe, expressed gratitude and acknowledgment for Alessandra Girolami’s significant contributions, commending her steadfast guidance during transformative phases in the company’s trajectory. Sadoun emphasized her pivotal role in navigating challenges and steering the organization toward new milestones.
These strategic appointments underscore Publicis Groupe’s commitment to fortifying its financial leadership, leveraging expertise, and reinforcing investor relations as the company navigates dynamic market landscapes and aims for sustained growth and innovation.
