Paris St-Germain CEO To Speak at Leaders in Football

Tue 24th Jul 2012 | Football Industry Events

Now Paris St Germain join FIFA, UEFA, Japan FA, BT, ESPN, CONCACAF, Emirates, Orange and AB InBev at Leaders

Jean-Claude Blanc, Chief Executive Officer of Paris St-Germain and one of the most respected CEO’s in sport, is the latest top name speaker to be announced for the exclusive audience of 1,000 club CEOs and Directors at the 5th annual Leaders in Football, at Chelsea FC on 10th and 11th October 2012.

In what will be a fascinating insight into one of the world’s wealthiest football clubs, he will be speaking on a unique European Clubs panel with other Presidents and CEO’s, and will discuss his vision for Paris St Germain, their new stadium, academy and training centre strategies, and their rapid transformation into a major European footballing power.

Blanc said, “Leaders in Football brings together the top people in the game from across the world and it will be a pleasure to share my experiences, from Juventus and Paris St Germain, with this group. It is always useful to share ideas with counterparts in other clubs and leagues and I hope to contribute to some vibrant discussions.”

Over the last 25 years Jean-Claude Blanc has held various senior management positions in sport. He has managed the Tour De France and The French Open (Roland Garros), and was appointed Chairman of Juventus FC in 2009 where he spearheaded the development of the team’s new stadium. In 2011, following Qatar Investment Authority’s takeover, Blanc was appointed Director General of Ligue 1’s Paris St Germain and is playing a critical role in the transformation of the club.

He is the latest addition to the 2012 Leaders in Football agenda which already includes a number of top industry figures, including MLS Commissioner Don Garber and FIFA Vice President HRH Prince Ali bin Al-Hussein.

The invite-only event takes place within the Leaders Sport Summit, a coming together of 5 leading conferences including Sponsorship, Digital Sport, Performance and the business of Horse Racing, over 10th and 11th October at Chelsea FC.
