Stacey Kodak

Stacey Ferris Kodak joined JCDecaux North America in 2002 as Executive Assistant supporting the co-CEO, today she is Senior Vice President of Business Development and Properties.

"I am responsible for the overall management of the concession contracts at John F. Kennedy, Newark Liberty, La Guardia, Washington Dulles, Washington Reagan and Boston Logan International Airports. I also oversee our advertising programs at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, PATH Stations and the Massport Seaport. I work with the governing authority, airlines and our own sales, finance, legal and operations teams on a daily basis.

I am responsible for planning and managing business development policies, objectives and initiatives for the Airport, and Transit Divisions, as directed by the co-CEO. I prepare the responses to Request for Proposals for advertising programs. I also prepare all of our requests for new advertising exhibits and locations.
I enjoy the diversity in my position. One day I may be visiting an airport trying to identify new advertising locations and meeting with the airport staff, while the next day I may spend in my office working on an RFP response."

Nicolas de Tapol joined JCDecaux in November 2007 as a marketing trainee working for JCDecaux Airport France. After spending six months in Neuilly, he was given the opportunity to go to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates on an international marketing internship for JCDecaux Middle East Africa.

In early 2010, Nicolas de Tapol worked in the Sales Division, where he was responsible for several sectors. He was appointed Development Manager for q.media Decaux in December 2010.

"My main role is to develop new assets for q.media Decaux. I am also responsible for our relationships with our partners in Qatar: Doha Municipality, private suppliers of large format, transport companies (buses, taxis and airport) and shopping centres. I am lucky to be working in a multicultural environment (there are more than 15 different nationalities working at q.media Decaux), for a subsidiary in a country that is in the midst of full-scale development, within a multinational company that is in 55 countries. This is a unique experience!"

Isabelle Vincent

Isabelle Vincent joined the Group in 1998 as Assistant General Counsel. She has been in charge of intellectual property rights for the entire JCDecaux Group since 1999.

"I oversee a team of three employees and I handle all issues related to the Group's industrial property and copyrights.
These registrations are intended to protect the innovations made by departments working in creative fields within the Group. My team makes sure that all these registrations are made on behalf of JCDecaux SA.

- Trademarks protect a word or phrase: the Group's principal brands are JCDecaux, Avenir, Cyclocity, Senior, Artvertising, etc.
- Drawings and models are also registered to ensure protection for a particular shape or form of our street furniture items, or to protect their new designs, such as the Cyclocity anti-theft system.
Sixty percent of our work is devoted to the Group's activities abroad. We work with some forty experts based in different countries and so are able to take into account specific aspects of local legislation. We look after the interests of the Group and ensure that it respects the rights of any third parties.

It's a daily challenge to meet but it makes my job exciting."

Starting in 2002 as an Account Manager in the Marketing Department of our subsidiary in Argentina, Martin Rama was promoted in 2007 to the position of Director of City Relations for Latin America.

"As Director of City Relations, I am responsible for managing the contracts we have signed with different cities in Latin America and for developing new markets and responding to calls for tenders, liaising with the General Management team. I’ve been able to travel as part of my job, working on projects in Chile, Uruguay, Montevideo and Argentina. My greatest achievement, apart from winning bids such as Santiago in 2008 has been my professional development within the company. I am pleased that my work at JCDecaux has led to greater."
