TF1 Group CEO Gilles Pelisson Has an Ambitious Plan For the Future

3 April 2017 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since taking the reins a little over a year ago, TF1 Group chairman and CEO Gilles Pélisson has implemented an ambitious digital transformation strategy.

His aim: widen the group’s international presence, restructuring it as a multi-channel content marketplace, with reinforced branding and stronger appeal to key audience segments, including women and millennials.

The 59-year-old Pélisson, whose TF1 is the recipient of this year’s Variety Achievement in Intl. TV Award, is the nephew of MIT-educated Gerard Pélisson, co-founder of the Accor international hotel chain; Gilles has assumed key management positions within the Accor group, including CEO between 2006 and 2010.

Following his Harvard Business School Mba, Gilles Pélisson worked for six years in the U.S. and then put in seven years as deputy CEO and CEO at Euro Disney in Paris between 1993 and 2000. More recently, he advised U.S. investment bank Jefferies and is currently a board member of consultancy firm Accenture.
