Business without borders

After his last year of studies spent in Milan on Erasmus, Jean-Philippe joined Editions Dupuis as a sales representative, then quickly as key account manager and sales manager.

In 1995, a turning point in his career, Dupuis offered him the opportunity to take over the management of licenses for the French market. He leaves for Paris where he will remain two years to develop licenses and promotions resulting from the characters of Dupuis.

The mission successful, he returned to Belgium to take over the international department where he developed, in particular, sales of comic books in more than 50 countries. He will also forge his experience in setting up partnerships with the entire French, Belgian and Dutch press.
In 1999, he joined the Management Committee of Dupuis, then of the Dargaud Group, as sales director and audio-visual director.

He will enhance his ease of communication, his strength of conviction and his formidable ability to integrate and coordinate all the activities revolving around the international distribution of cartoons, such as publishing, merchandising, licensing, syndication, promotion, foreign publishing rights and Trade Marketing.

Trilingual French-English-Dutch, father of a little girl, former motorcycle champion, Jean-Philippe has developed in 14 years a wide web of international relations in the media and then property development sectors.
