The Agency

During his 15 years of experience in multinationals and SMEs, François Drounau figured out that a link in the chain was often missing to successfully carry out the projects of the brands – especially those projects that were not in the core business of the company. The multinationals always miss time, the SMEs often miss resources.
With this in mind, he decided to create in 2014 the first outsourcing marketing company in wines and spirits: L’Assemblage. In 2017, to meet growing needs, L’Assemblage expands its field of expertise on operations. Cécile Bagot joins the team to offer customers support in Lean, Quality and Continuous Improvement. From upstream to downstream, L’Assemblage supports its clients in their projects and progress.
In 2019, Cécile moved to Singapore and L’Assemblage opened up on Asia, an area that is essential from sales, digital and supply chain perspective. “This is the assemblage of our skills that will drive success.” In 2020, new step, L’Assemblage welcomes its third partner, Guillaume Chaput, and adds Human Resources expertise to its portfolio of activities. It responds to a strong demand from customers eager to better manage their human challenges, increasingly important and complex nowadays.
