As a continuation of his successful career, at the end of 2018, Jérôme became Marketing Director of the ABB FIA Formula-E championship in order to offer more activities to participants.
“The prospect of joining a brand like Formula E was exciting [...]After watching its rise to power from an outside perspective, and noting the progress it has made in recent years, I look forward to contributing to this forward-thinking organisation to continue the development of fan engagement and consumer-centric activities,” said Jerome.
