About me

Agathe Bousquet is 43 years old, she is a graduate of Sciences-Po Paris, and holds a master’s degree in political philosophy and a master’s in management from the University of Paris-Dauphine.
She began her career in the non-profit sector, with Solidarité Sida (association helping AIDS patients). She was a volunteer from the inception of this organization in 1992. When she completed her studies in 1996, she chose to manage this association full-time for the first five years of her career. This involved numerous fund-raising campaigns, but also campaigns aimed at awareness-raising and prevention in France and abroad. This also entailed playing an active part in the creation of the Solidays music festival.
In 2001, she decided to join the world of communications that she had called upon extensively for her association. She became a consultant within the Brands Division at Euro RSCG Corporate which was then headed by Stéphane Fouks and Laurent Habib. Two years later she was promoted Associate Director of Euro RSCG C&O, in charge of large accounts such as AREVA, Orange Business Services, Amgen, McDonald’s, and the French Red Cross, among others. In 2008, she became a partner in the agency, in charge of development and communications. Two years further on she was named Deputy CEO and then, in 2012, Yannick Bolloré appointed her Chair and CEO of the agency that had since become Havas Paris. Agathe Bousquet has held that position ever since, even after Havas Paris merged with Havas 360 at the end of 2015.
Agathe Bousquet is still a Director and volunteer at Solidarité Sida. She is also a member of the board of France’s AACC (Association des Agences-Conseils en Communication).
