Pending the arrival of its future CEO, Paris has temporarily opted for an internal solution. At least until the end of the season.
Reassure and project yourself. This Thursday morning, the employees of the administrative part of the PSG had an appointment at the Parc des Princes for a big meeting in the presence of President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the future ex-DG Jean-Claude Blanc (he will become the new director in February General of Ineos).
While the announcement of his departure at the end of December (he is very appreciated internally and masters all the files) shook a large part of the club, this great internal rout looked as much like a big goodbye as an attempt to comfort employees.
In addition to the few group photos in the Carré du Parc and the presidential selfie, they were able to discover the important announcements in terms of reorganization made by NAK and which will soon be communicated.
They will share the prerogatives of JCB until the end of the season
If new faces have already arrived to strengthen certain services, such as Antoine Hérault who left Paris 2024 to join the sponsorship part of the capital’s club, others should arrive in the coming weeks or even months to strengthen various services that were in great need.
Information that Nasser Al-Khelaïfi also confirmed this Thursday morning in front of the employees, before talking about the overhaul of the organization chart and the replacement of Jean-Claude Blanc.
PSG, which wants to recruit its future CEO from outside, will temporarily replace JCB with an internal duo. Victoriano Melero and Marc Armstrong will indeed take over until the end of the season by sharing certain prerogatives.
The first, who currently holds the position of Secretary General, should oversee the financial and operational part. When the second, in charge of sponsorship, will have to supervise all areas that generate revenue.
In addition to this major announcement, the president took the opportunity to recall the arrival of Michelle Gilbert, ex-Meta, and Pascal Ferré, former editor-in-chief of France Football. They will both take the direction of communication. One will lead the institutional part and the other the sports part. Both will travel to Qatar and Saudi Arabia next week.
