He has had three distinct professional careers: television journalist, Internet entrepreneur, and head of a media agency, all of which give him expertise in content, digital and media at the international level.

Dominique Delport began his career as Deputy Chief Editor for the television channel M6 Lyon, and then became Chief Editor at M6 Lille. In 1996, he was appointed Chief Editor at M6, the second largest private television channel in France.

From 1996 to 2000, he directed the news program “6 Minutes” (4 million daily viewers) and news reports (including “Zone Interdite” and “Capital”).

In April 2000, he gave up his career in television to move into the world of startups, forming the streaming multimedia company “Streampower”, where he served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

In October 2001, Streampower became a 75% subsidiary of the Rivaud Media group (Bolloré Group).

In 2003, Dominique Delport launched a daily program on Canal+, “Merci pour l’info”, and in 2004, for France 5, he created and produced the program “C.U.L.T.”, an interactive televised broadcast on urban cultures featuring live videos from bloggers.

After participating in the launch of Direct 8 (TNT), Dominique Delport hosted the weekly show titled “8-Fi”, a live broadcast devoted to new media and technologies.

Dominique Delport joined Media Planning Group (MPG) on February 1, 2006 as Managing Director, while retaining his position as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Streampower. He was appointed Chief Executive of MPG France in June 2006 and then, in February 2007, Managing Director of Havas Media France.

In February 2008, he was promoted to the position of Chairman-Managing Director of Havas Media France, a position he held until the end of 2015.

In February 2009, he was elected to a two-year term as President of the Union of Media Consulting and Purchasing (UDECAM), the organization for all French media agencies.

Following the success of the integrated organization of Havas Media France, he was named Chief Executive Officer of the Havas Media Group global network.

As a member of the Executive Committee of Havas Media Group, he now supervises all brands, customers, commercial activities, research and business intelligence for the group’s 126 markets, under the direction of Yannick Bolloré, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Havas.

In November 2013, he was given direct responsibility for Havas Media Group in the United Kingdom as Chairman.
