[OFF] Cyril Zimmermann leaves, Ommi.fr raised 310,000 euros …
Cyril Zimmermann, the president and founder of Hi-Media Group will leave Paris to settle in San Francisco. Entrepreneur involved in the media world, especially on the issue of ad blocking, he will therefore have to gradually give up his various hats. Since April 2014, he has been President of ACSEL, a term of one year. He is also a member of the Digital Commission at the National Assembly.
Information on which Cyril Zimmermann wanted to react:
“I wanted to clarify first that I left for HiMedia (which he founded) and that I am not expected to leave ACSEL. On the contrary, being in San Francisco will make it possible to build a Paris-Silivon Valley bridge for ACSEL and facilitate exchanges and inspiration. In addition, I will be going back and forth, and ACSEL also relies on an office and a permanent team headed by Grégorie Ducret who was recently recruited. ”
