Bouvier reports to Edelman France president Marie Rouet on the French part of his remit, and to London-based Europe vice-chairman Michael Burrell on pan-European work.
He started work in Edelman's Paris office last Friday. Previous to this, he worked for the Paris outfit Communication & Institutions.
Burrell described Bouvier as ‘a well-known PA professional in both Paris and Brussels'.
Edelman France PA head Christian Marmain is to retire next year. His departure is scheduled for 30 June.
