Rousseau elected AEPOC President

February 22, 2010

Philippe-Olivier Rousseau, Managing Director and Senior Banker at BNP Paribas, has been elected as new president of the European Anti-Piracy Association, AEPOC. Rousseau is the successor to Jean Grenier , the former General Director of Eutelsat, who has retired after pioneering and developing the first pan-European industry initiative against audio-visual piracy during 13 years. Among many other commitments the telecommunications engineer and musician held positions at the Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel (CSA), Eutelsat, Intelsat and Music Choice Europe.

The co-ordination of effective political and legal industry initiatives against piracy, the exchange of technical information, expertise and best practice as well as tightening AEPOC's relationships with EU policy associations and global anti-piracy partners will be on the agenda of the new president.
