Kobo is growing at a tremendous pace as it works with new partners to bring Kobo to countries like South Africa, Brazil and Italy, and working with more authors and publishers than ever before to bring exciting new content to consumers. As Kobo grows, the company is gaining more attention and attracting top-tier talent to our growing team around the world. It is thrilling to announce that as part of our expansion, Jean-Marc Dupuis has been appointed the Managing Director of EMEA.

Jean-Marc brings a wealth of knowledge in the technology sector with more than 25 years of experience. Prior to joining Kobo Jean-Marc was the Sales Director for Apple managing South Europe, the Middle East and Africa – he doubled revenue in his regions! Jean-Marc thinks it’s “phenomenal to join Kobo at a time when the brand is gaining such impressive traction worldwide”.  Jean-Marc will be based in Paris, France and work closely with our EVP and General Manager of Devices Wayne White, to continue building Kobo’s strength in existing markets as well as expand in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  

Kobo is thrilled to have such a seasoned professional on our team and we hope you’ll help us welcome him.
