François Cusset

Founder - Head of Business

Having founded a successful record label in the 2000s, François soon made a move into the digital world at Cellfish/Lagardère Active. From content distribution to the creation and marketing of original franchise, he also developed monetising expertise (brand content, subscription models, licensing etc…).

With the arrival of the smartphone revolution, 2010 saw François join a young start-up Mister Bell as head of marketing with the goal of aggregating mobile audiences and creating advertising solutions for brands and publishers.

In 2018 he decided to return to the studio by founding Engle.
