PARIS — French retail-to-luxury group PPR said it has appointed Jean-Marc Duplaix as chief financial officer in order to free up group managing director Jean-François Palus to take on additional responsibilities within the group, as part of an ongoing management reorganization launched earlier this year.
Palus, who previously combined the managing director and cfo positions, will dedicate his time fully to expanding, supporting and coordinating the group’s brands, which range from Gucci to Puma and books and electronics retailer Fnac, PPR stated.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
