Governance

In 2021, Hiventy developed a two-division organization that will allow it to grow and accelerate its development.

The France division, headed by Benoît Provost, is organized around four Business Units, each in charge of one of the group’s four core businesses:

  • Audiovisual post-production, under the leadership of Cédric Bruzac, in charge of all audiovisual post-production for all types of programs, whether digital or film, for all types of broadcasters. Olivier Duval works with Gaëlle Collet-Alicot and Laurie Dumas to market these activities.
  • Localization, under the leadership of Emmanuelle Bouziguet, in charge of dubbing, subtitling and accessibility from any source language to any target language and for any type of broadcast. Emmanuelle Bouziguet works with Jean-Luc Bertin and Etienne Magain to market these activities.
  • Management and delivery of audiovisual content and films, under the leadership of Franck Goujon, in charge of content certification, storage, management and delivery for all types of broadcasting. Franck Goujon works with Julien Tignat to market these activities.
  • Restoration, under the leadership of Benjamin Alimi, in charge of the preservation and restoration of audiovisual content and films. Benjamin Alimi works with Laurence Vasseur to market these activities.

The International division, headed by Juliette Vivier, brings together all of the group’s foreign subsidiaries:

  • Hiventy Asia, based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Singapore
  • Hiventy Poland, based in Warsaw, Poland
  • Hiventy Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya and Lagos, Nigeria

To support the Business Units and International division in their development and in conquering new markets, a Business Development Unit has been created under the leadership of Bertrand Chalon (Group Director of Development and Strategy). The Business Development Unit is in charge of:

  • Continued technical and market monitoring
  • The structuring and marketing of the company’s services
  • Participation in discussions on the company’s strategic development
  • Project management in the development of tools and workflows allowing the company to offer more types of services, increase production volumes and optimize production costs.

The company has two Executive Committees in charge of governance:
