Our story

  • Mai 2018 : A une étape cruciale de son développement, Julien Poilleux est nommé Directeur Général d'EUROPAGES. Sa mission est de définir, mettre en œuvre et superviser les stratégies de croissance de la société sur son marché en France et à l'international.

  • November 2017: A change of analytics solution to refine results. The EUROPAGES site adopts a new French Web Analytics solution: AT Internet. Visitor numbers to business pages and visitor interactions with the different forms of digital content provided by EUROPAGES clients will be measured in more detail. Clients will therefore have more control over their international online profile.

  • October 2017: The EUROPAGES site is successfully migrated to https, with a fresh increase in traffic recorded for the last quarter: +35% Q4 2017 vs. Q4 2016.

  • September 2017: Highlighting of action buttons on business and products pages. The buttons serve as key performance indicators (KPIs) for our clients. For example, in 2017 our clients counted an average of 46.3 interactions on their business or product pages per week (the results vary depending on their pack).

  • July 2017: We are happy to welcome our new managing director, Anne Schoenbrun, who is taking over at the helm of EUROPAGES. Denis Duran is joining EUROPAGES as Sale Director for French-Speaking Europe and General Director for Benelux.
