Françoise brings over 30 years of international business experience to WNS, most recently as CEO of Pierre & Vacances-Center Parcs Group, the European leader in local tourism.
Before joining Pierre & Vacances in 2013, Françoise was Executive Vice President for France, and then for all of Southern Europe, at Manpower, Inc., a world leader in workforce solutions who she joined in 2007.

Jeremy Young, a member of the WNS Board since 2004, has chosen not to stand for re-election at the company’s ensuing Annual General Meeting, and as a result the term of his directorship will expire at that time. “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Jeremy for his many contributions to WNS over the past 11 years. He has been instrumental in helping guide the company from a privately held spin-off to a publicly traded leader in the BPM space,” said Chairman Adrian Dillon.
