« L’une de mes missions chez Cartier est la mise en place et le déploiement de la stratégie « owned media » sur les sites Cartier et sur les réseaux sociaux.

« Après être passé par Publicis Conseil, je m’occupe aujourd’hui de la conception-rédaction pour le Département Luxe pour les comptes Lancôme et Cartier. Mon Master 2 à Sup de Pub a été un véritable tremplin pour intégrer les agences de publicité, en grande partie grâce à un rythme d’alternance qui laisse une large place à la professionnalisation et l’intégration dans l’entreprise. »
