Olivennes will replace Didier Quillot at the head of Lagardère Active. Olivennes, who was named as CEO of Lagardère-owned radio service Europe 1 last year, as well as having responsibility for news titles including Paris Match and the Journal du Dimanche, will now be responsible for all of Lagardère’s media activities.
