Publicis Groupe is appointing Delphine Stricker as the Groupe's new vice president/director of communication replacing Peggy Nahmany who left earlier this year to join The Thales Group.
Reporting to Arthur Sadoun, Chairman & CEO of Publicis Groupe, Stricker will be in charge of Publicis Groupe’s communications efforts globally.
Stricker has extensive experience in media relations. Most recently she has worked as a partner consultant at French PR agency Image 7 which has clients including Bain + Co, Hermes, Estée Lauder, and Capgemini.
Her earlier positions were rooted largely in government, including serving as communication officer of Alain Lambert, French Minister of the budget, Jean-Louis Borloo, French Minister for social cohesion and Jean-François Copé, French Minister of the budget and government spokesman from 2002 to 2007.
Stricker was appointed Head of the Press office of the Prime Minister François Fillon from 2007 to 2009.
In 2010 she founded Wise Conseil, a consulting agency in corporate and financial communication.
"She brings valuable skills in communication strategy, press relations, financial communication and crisis communication to the Groupe and our agencies," says Sadoun.
