Two years ago, she joined us as a Client Partner in charge of strategic accounts such as L’Oréal, Shiseido and Estée Lauder. Elsa is joining the Board of Directors.
Everyone in the office knows when Elsa is working late, because this song from Snarky Puppy, her favorite group, will undoubtedly be playing.
In her team, Léa Lebreton has been promoted to Client Partner.
For two years, she built her experience in digital communications and e-commerce, working for ila March, Majestic Filatures puis Hervé Chapelier before joining Ykone in May 2014. In her spare time, Léa loves to edit videos and take part in Latin dancing.
