Adwanted Group, owner of The Media Leader, has promoted Hicham El Mokhtari to CEO of its French business.

“We have carefully prepared for this transition with a strengthened leadership team in France and so I hand over the role to him with complete confidence.”

In his new position, El Mokhtari will join the group’s senior leadership team based in London and New York. The team comprises: Heather Petaccio (US CEO), Greg Grimmer (UK CEO), Nicola Mullet (group chief strategy officer) and Debuyck (group CEO).
