KEDGE graduates, what has become of your student...
After Olivier Létang's ouster at the beginning of February, on Wednesday Stade Rennais FC officially announced the arrival of his replacement as Executive President - Nicolas Holveck.
"Our sole objective is to do everything we can to ensure that these last ten matches will allow us to go down in the history of the club" - Nicolas Holveck.
Nicolas graduated with a Master's degree in Sports Management from KEDGE Business School in 1997. He rose through the ranks at AS Nancy-Lorraine, where he first began as a trainee in 1997 until he became Managing Director
In 2014, Nicolas joined AS Monaco as Deputy Managing Director. In that position, he oversaw Monaco's recent successes (the French championship title and the C1 saga) from the inside. He soon rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in the world of football: Radamel Falcao, Ricardo Carvalho, Jeremy Toulalan, and the very young Anthony Martial, who all wore the red and white jersey of Monaco. Before the emergence of the future crack player, Kylian Mbappé and the unexpected winning of the title of French champion won in 2017 at PSG.
He left the Monaco club at the beginning of March to join Stade Rennais.
