Behind The Audiencers, the Poool team. In particular:
Digital publishing professional since 2006, Marion started by working for pure-player press before larger national titles in France including ELLE Magazine, L’OBS and Challenges where she was Chief Digital Officer until 2017. Following this, Marion founded Underlines, a consultancy agency for digital publishers, later working more closely with Poool who acquired the company in 2021. Since then, she has taken the role of Chief Marketing Officer and associate at Poool, also lecturing on reader revenue models for publishers at various journalism schools in France and Switzerland.
Madeleine has been part of Poool since 2019, firstly as a French to English translator before taking the role of Content Marketing Manager in 2021 where she’s developed a deep understanding of the digital publishing industry – you could say that the Poool blog was her baby that has now grown up to become The Audiencers. Guardian of the English side of the company, she co-pilots the publication alongside Marion.
Previously working at Papernest, Pierre has worked with Poool since 2020 when his year-long travel plans fell under (you can guess why). As our growth marketer, Pierre is known to sit at his computer in silence for a few days before emerging and telling us that “it’s sorted, it works perfectly now”.
Given that Ugo would never write a bio himself, we can resume by saying that nothing at Poool would exist without him. Including this media. And especially our products. In short, he’s our CTO.
The one to suggest we launch a media, Maxime is our beloved CEO at Poool, the company that he co-founded alongside Gabriel Grandidier, Alexandre Santini and Ugo (yes, the very same).
…as well as the entire Poool team that work relentlessly each day to develop strategies, intelligence and tools around audience engagement, conversion and retention: Nicolas Auger, Flore Bayle, Morgan Berger, Maxime da Silva, Simon Deflesschouwer, Caroline Douet, Guillaume Lecuyer, Tyler Escolano, Mehdi Ezzahi, Jimena Llamas, Mike Mendes, Julie Murté, Emile Netter, Yannis Pagès, Ludivine Paquet, Eric Raden, Anthony Ribeiro, Pauline Ruiz, Manola Peroy, Adem Duran, Emma Rousseau and all those to join us in the future (find our job offers here).
