Philippe Fournier, president of MCI France, said: "MCI France’s impressive growth over the last few years is in line with the strategic vision of the MCI Group, and acquisitions to incorporate additional creative capacity to better engage our clients’ target audiences play a key role in this growth plan."

Alexandre added: "After our successful entrepreneurial adventure, we’re excited to be moving on to the next stage. Combining Yves Hunt’s dynamism with the MCI Group’s impressive global presence and best practices will allow us to embrace new challenges and gain experience in new markets."
