Omnicom-owned DDB Paris’ chief executive Jean-Luc Bravi will step aside after nearly 23 years, with Alexander Kalchev and Paul Ducré set to jointly succeed him.

Bravi will become the chairman of the agency, a newly created position that will allow him to remain involved in the 26-year-old business that began as Louis XIV in 1994 to service the Volkswagen account and manage the Audi brand at a national and international level.

The agency merged with DDB in 20221, with Bravi being named as co-CEO while the agency continues to handle the Volkswagen account.

DDB Paris also works with brands such as Hennessy, Glenmorangie, Ubisoft, Uber, TAG Heuer, Unesco and Amnesty International.
