NEBEL TO PPR INTERACTIVE
PARIS — Less than a week after Pinault-Printemps-Redoute lost one of its top Internet executives, the French retailer announced that he would be succeeded by Jean-Francois Nebel, an executive with Andersen Consulting.
Nebel becomes president of PPR Interactive, succeeding Bruno Cremel, who left PPR to become chief of staff for Laurent Fabius, French economics and finance minister.
Nebel, who joins the group Monday, has been an associate partner with Andersen since 1996 in the customer relationship management division. Previously, Nebel, 35, worked in marketing and international sales at L’Oreal and at Unilever.
PPR Interactive is run by Francois-Henri Pinault, the son of group founder Francois Pinault, and is involved in launching new online activities for the group and developing Mageos.com, PPR’s Internet service provider and portal.
