New directions in our agencies!
LaFourmi & Leroy Tremblot
The agency confirmed its ambition to provide the most cross-disciplinary offering on the market with the acquisition in 2017 of the brand design agency Leroy Tremblot, specializing in brand identity expression and brand partnership engagement in the sporting world.
Renowned among the top players on the market for their creative and strategic expertise, the two agencies are strengthening their management to take a highly ambitious approach to the years to come, which will place France at the heart of the global sporting landscape.
A REINFORCED CREATIVE DIRECTION FOR LAFOURMI

A NEW DIRECTION FOR LEROY TREMBLOT
Departure of Antoine Tremblot, Founder and CEO
A new chapter is beginning for Leroy Tremblot, which was founded by Antoine in 1984. After 36 years of sporting adventures, Antoine has handed over the keys of the agency to Dominique Jubert (CEO) and Martin Iselt (Creative Director), following an internal handover that began in 2017, the year of Leroy Tremblot’s acquisition by LaFourmi.
Antoine has made an indelible mark on the sports marketing market! It was a huge pleasure and a real honor to have him as a guide! The entire Leroy Tremblot team, along with the whole LaFourmi family, is committed to continuing his work and taking a highly ambitious approach in the years to come, which will place France at the heart of the global sporting landscape. 👊
We love you, Antoine!
Dominique Jubert appointed CEO Driven by creatives and sports experts, Leroy Tremblot is the only player entirely devoted to branding and design concerns on the sport business market. 44-year-old Dominique Jubert becomes its CEO after spending twelve years alongside Antoine in the post of Consulting and Development Director. He will be tasked with supporting the agency’s clients in defining their brand strategy, optimizing their visibility in a context of extensive media coverage, managing brand cohabitation, and developing their primary revenue streams. This reflects the whole spirit of the agency’s positioning: Sports Brand Coaching.
Martin Iselt appointed Creative Director
43-year-old Martin Iselt joins Leroy Tremblot as Creative Director, following in the footsteps of the agency’s founder.
