  • Africa will be the responsibility of Martin Sabbagh, who will remain Managing Director of the Middle East region and continue to be based in Dubai;
  • Belgium, Luxembourg and Israel will join France to form a new region and will be managed by Wim Jansen, currently Managing Director of Belgium and Luxembourg, based in Brussels. He will work under the joint responsibility of Isabelle Schlumberger, Executive Vice-President, Sales, Marketing and Development, and Jean-Michel Geffroy, Executive Vice-President, Territories and Institutions. Isabelle Schlumberger and Jean-Michel Geffroy are based in Paris.

Jean-François Decaux, Chairman of the Executive Board and Co-CEO of JCDecaux, and Jean-Charles Decaux, Co-Chief Executive Officer of JCDecaux, said: “We would like to warmly thank Jean-Sébastien for everything he has contributed to the Group since 1998 and we are delighted with his decision to devote himself to the philanthropic activities of our family. We share the need to strengthen our initiatives in this area and build a more ambitious approach in this new project. We continue to build on both the heritage of Jean-Claude Decaux and the duty to perpetuate our family, entrepreneurial and environmental values and pass them on to the third generation. The urgency of today’s challenges call for our full, determined and participative commitment. We are certain that Jean-Sebastien will be able to harness the skills and resources necessary to successfully complete this new mission just as he did for 21 years at JCDecaux SA.
We would like to wish every success to the executives, who will now have the opportunity to apply their experience and perfect knowledge of the Group to new and expanded territories which is effective from 1st January.” 

Commenting, Jean-Sébastien Decaux, CEO Southern Europe, Belgium and Luxembourg, Africa, Israel and member of the Executive Board of JCDecaux, said: “I am pleased to be able to devote myself to the development of our family’s ambitious and socially-responsible project addressing the challenges of our times. Our family, with its high standards and commitment, are fully investing in a field that it is my honour to lead. I will harness its skills and resources and build bridges with JCDecaux SA as well to enhance our social impact.

I hope that all the teams I have had the pleasure of managing will continue to find fulfilment at the company and give their very best, and that those taking over my region will experience as much satisfaction as I have.
Naturally, I will remain fully dedicated to the future of JCDecaux SA.”
