Erwann Le Page Appointed as Head of Paris Office for Dentons Global Advisors

Paris – 4 March 2024 – Dentons Global Advisors (DGA), an elite multidisciplinary advisory firm, today announced the appointment of Erwann Le Page as the new Head of its Paris office. Mr. Le Page succeeds Florence Maisel, who is retiring from the role after 35 years of service. Ms. Maisel will serve as a Senior Advisor, ensuring a seamless transition for the firm and its clients.

In his new role, Mr. Le Page will lead the Paris office in providing advisory services to clients operating in France, Europe and throughout the world. He brings 15 years of experience in the fields of public affairs, complex communications and crisis management, emblematic of the firm’s focus on delivering multidisciplinary solutions for clients amid an increasingly complex, regulated and interconnected business environment.

“We are delighted to name Erwann as the new Head of our Paris office,” said Ed Reilly, the firm’s Chief Executive Officer. “Erwann’s entrepreneurial experience, multidisciplinary expertise and strategic vision make him the ideal leader to take our Paris business to the next level in driving value for clients.”

Mr. Le Page joined the firm in October 2023 after two years as Director of Public Affairs, Corporate Communications and Business Development across Europe for TIER, a micromobility provider of shared, light electric vehicles. Previously, Mr. Le Page served as Deputy Managing Director of Hill+Knowlton France, where he led the public affairs and crisis offerings. He also co-founded and managed Deleasy, a foodtech pioneer in the on-demand delivery sector.

“I am honored to lead the Paris office during this exciting time for DGA,” said Mr. Le Page. “I look forward to building on the strong foundation established by Florence and the team to help our clients navigate the complex geopolitical landscape, preserve their reputation, manage change and maximise opportunity.”

A pioneer of the public affairs and lobbying industry in France, Ms. Maisel is transitioning into a new role as Senior Advisor after a storied career. Beginning as a management consultant at Arthur Young, now Ernst & Young (EY), she then went on to open the Paris office in 1989 for Interel, a European public affairs firm that was acquired by Dentons Global Advisors in 2021. During her 35-year tenure with the firm, Ms. Maisel established a marketing-leading team known for their extensive local relationships, track record of success and deep expertise across numerous industries.

“We are profoundly grateful to Florence for her years of exceptional leadership and dedication,” said Deborah Scott, Partner and Head of the firm’s Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region. “Her contributions have been countless, but perhaps most important, she has built a dynamic team that is poised for continued growth and success.”
