TF1 Group Appoints for Finance, Strategy, M&A


Pierre-Alain Gérard has been appointed to succeed Philippe Denery as executive VP of finance, strategy and procurement at TF1 Group.

Gérard will be working closely with operational management on responsibilities that will include financial performance around strategic priorities; financial communication to the markets and shareholders; handling any mergers and acquisitions; and the responsible procurement policy, in support of its climate pledges.

Gérard joined Bouygues Group in 2009 and, until 2019, worked in the finance/strategy function, first at Bouygues SA and then at Bouygues Energies & Services and finally at Bouygues Immobilier. In 2019, he was appointed central head of strategy, development and financial control at Bouygues.

Rodolphe Belmer, chairman and CEO of TF1 Group, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Pierre-Alain Gérard to our executive committee. His successful career in investment banking and within the Bouygues Group means that Pierre-Alain has all the expertise required to support our strategic plan. I would also like to offer my warmest thanks to Philippe Denery for his exceptional contribution to TF1 over the past 15 years. In particular, he built up a robust finance function that has played a significant role in our operational performance and developed a well-respected responsible procurement policy to underpin our societal commitments.”
