PSG Deputy General Manager since 2011, Jean-Claude Blanc decided to leave the club last December to join OGC Nice in February. A movement that forces the Parisian board to make several changes to its organization chart.
The message sent is strong. While many rumors point to a gradual disassociation of the current Parisian leaders, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi wanted to set the record straight during a speech given to the Club's collaborators, gathered in the Parc des Princes.
The CEO's way of remembering QSI's ambitions at the helm of the Parisian squad. Leader of Ligue 1, PSG has formalized, with this in mind, several changes.
Al-Khelaifi has appointed and promoted five new talents, internal and external, all recognized for their cutting-edge and diverse experience, both in France and abroad.
From now on, Victoriano Melero, the Club's general secretary, and Marc Armstrong, director of sponsorships, will thus form the new duo in charge of overseeing the functions previously held by Jean-Claude Blanc.
On the other hand, Fabien Allègre, Brand Director of the Club, will now occupy the position of Deputy Director of the Paris Saint-Germain Foundation, at the heart of the club's strategy.
Important and first-rate changes in the communication area of Paris Saint-Germain
Finally, for the communication part, the high command of Paris have decided, this time, to call an outsider. Michelle Gilbert, previously Director of Communications for France and Southern Europe at Meta, has been appointed Director of Corporate Communications.
Beside her, Pascal Ferré, former editor-in-chief of France Football and director of the Ballon d'Or, will take over as Director of Communications for the first team. While other arrivals, whether internal or external, are still expected, Nasser Al-Khelaifi for his part justified these important developments.
"New projects, new partnerships, and other appointments will be announced in the coming months as Paris Saint-Germain continues its progression as one of the greatest football and sports institutions in the world." A speech that reaffirms the lofty ambitions of the current owners.
