Guillaume Semblat


In 2000, based in Brittany, Guillaume founded REGIONSJOB.COM, one of the first French job boards, with two partners. After 2 years as a small start-up, the business grew and for 11 years, Guillaume managed the company as CEO. By 2010, REGIONSJOBCOM was the French market leader.

In 2011, Guillaume left the company to take sabbatical leave with his family, sailing for a year around the North Atlantic Ocean. On his return, Guillaume joined Groupe Telegramme Développement (who had been the majority shareholder in REGIONSJOB.COM since 2001) as Deputy Managing Director in charge of New Business Development.

Guillaume became Executive Director of OC Sport after its purchase by the Groupe Telegramme in 2014. Passionate about sports and in particular sailing, Guillaume started sailing at age 7 on Optimists. After many races on mini6, 50, F18, IRC, Diam24, Guillaume now enjoys windsurfing and cat sailing with his 2 boys.

Remi Duchemin

Executive Director

From 2001 to 2008, Rémi Duchemin was Head of Strategic Marketing and Business Development at Amaury Sport Organisation. His work on the Tour de France, French Golf Open and Paris International Marathon helped grow the events in stature on the international stage, and he was also responsible for the creation and management of the Merrell Oxygen Challenge.

In 2009, Rémi founded ThirdPole, a new and expanding force in Outdoor Events ranging from running, cycling and biathlon, to more extreme sports including adventure and trail running. In 2010 ThirdPole merged with OC Group to form OC ThirdPole with Rémi as CEO, bringing together their competencies into a global sports marketing company, specialising in sailing and outdoor events. A further merger in June 2012 between OC ThirdPole and Patrice Clerc Associates saw the evolution of OC Sport.
