Focus on Figaro Classifieds
CEO @FIGARO CLASSIFIEDS
A graduate of the Rennes Business School, Thibaut Gemignani joined the GROUPE FIGARO in 1996 as Head of Advertising, then manager, in order to market the job offers of FIGARO ECONOMIE.
He then became CEO of CADREMPLOI at the end of 1998.
A pioneer of the Internet job market in France, he completed, in 2006, the merger of CADREMPLOI, KELJOB and FIGARO IMMO to create ADENCLASSIFIEDS.
In 2007, as Chief Executive Officer, he participated in the IPO of ADENCLASSIFIEDS and the integration in early 2010 of all the ‘classified ads’ activities of the GROUPE FIGARO.
Following its exit from the stock market, the company, wholly owned by the FIGARO GROUP, changed its name to FIGARO CLASSIFIEDS in 2011.
By combining organic growth (relaunch of FIGARO ÉTUDIANT, the launch of CHOOSEYOURBOSS …) and external growth (purchase of ACHAT-TERRAIN, CAMPUS CHANNEL …), FIGARO CLASSIFIEDS becomes the French leader of on-line classified ads.
The company is strengthening its leadership by acquiring VIADEO, the French professional social network, in early 2017.
Thibaut Gemignani is a member of the Executive Committee of Groupe Figaro.
