Decathlon has a new chairman, Fabien Derville, who had already been on the board of directors when it was headed up by the company's founder, Michel Leclercq. He takes the place of one of the founder's sons, Mathieu Leclerq, who resigned last June and is no longer on the board. Derville is an experienced and successful 56-year-old manager who has spent the last 35 years at two other French companies which, like Decathlon, are partly owned by the 60-plus “cousins” of the big Mulliez family group (AMF).
