He oversaw the global expansion of the agency which led to the creation of Havas Sports & Entertainment in 2008, at which point he was appointed Global President and CEO and is now responsible for the global growth of the network, overseeing all current business, driving commercial activity and expansion to new markets.
Beyond his management role, Lucien Boyer is recognized as one of today’s leading experts in sports and entertainment marketing. He also founded and acts as the General Commissioner for the Global Sports Forum, a leading thought-leadership platform for dialogue about future trends in the sport industry.
