Thierry Bolloré (born May 30, 1963 ) is a French manager who was CEO of the French multinational car manufacturer Renault until October 2019 . He also sits on the Board of Directors of AwtoWAS , Dongfeng Renault and Renault Brilliance Jinbei Automotive.


Bolloré received a Master of Business Administration from Paris-Dauphine University . He began his career in 1990 at Michelin , the tire manufacturer based in Clermont-Ferrand in Auvergne . There he was manager in a heavy-duty tire factory and from 1993 head of the process and quality center for all of the company's heavy-duty tire factories worldwide. He was then responsible for the heavy-duty truck division in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. Four years later, in 1997, he moved to Japan , where he became an industrial assistant at a local Michelin factory. In 1998 he moved to Thailand in the role of production manager of a factory . He later became managing director of the truck and aircraft businesses.

In 2005 he left Michelin and moved to Faurecia , an international manufacturer of auto parts , in China . Here he was responsible for the Asian business. In 2010 he moved to Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies as Vice President for Europe and South Africa.

In September 2012, Thierry Bolloré joined Renault and one month later was appointed Executive Vice President, Manufacturing and Supply Chain. After later serving in the positions of Chief Competitive Officer and Chief Operating Officer , he was promoted to interim managing director on November 20, 2018 after his predecessor Carlos Ghosn was arrested in Japan. He was appointed permanent managing director of Groupe Renault on January 24, 2019 and had to leave after ten months. A disproportionate loss of the share price within a year and a loss of confidence among Japanese customers required a signal-like new beginning or energetic restructuring, which Bolloré, as a pupil of the killed Goshn, was not believed to be.


Thierry Bolloré is a relative of the entrepreneur Vincent Bolloré . He is the father of five children.
