Six months and then gone. In charge of the operational management of AS Monaco since last May and the change of role of Oleg Petrov, Jean-Emmanuel de Witt is already leaving the club.
Despite a well-stocked CV (Lagardère, Hearst, Sanoma and JCDecaux), the message of the French businessman never really got through and the Rock club needed to start on another approach. He turned to a man he knows well: Ben Lambrecht, general manager of Cercle Bruges since March 2021.
“In Bruges, the Belgian leader has retained the good results of the Circle and the development of its business part. During these twenty months, Ben Lambrecht worked in close collaboration with the management of AS Monaco on the establishment of a global strategy aimed at modernizing the existing structure and strengthening the synergies between the two entities”, indicates the club of the Principality in a press release.
A graduate of INSEAD Business School, Ben Lambrecht, 58, has evolved in several international companies such as KPMG, Delacre and especially Coca-Cola, a brand for which he worked for 28 years (1993-2020) and held several positions. liability in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and France.
The Belgian will have all the services under his responsibility, with the exception of the sports management, still attributed to Paul Mitchell, in direct connection with the owner Dmitri Rybolovlev.
