We Analyse. We Feed. We Advise” model, itself backed by a double combination of proprietary technology and expertise.

“Being named the UK’s 2018 CEO of the Year in the Marketing Sector by CEO Monthly is a great honour for both myself and Fournaise. It is the fruit of two critical components: (A) the hard work of our fantastic, dedicated and highly knowledgeable Fournaise team, without whom nothing would happen, and (B) the no-nonsense and result-driven mentality of the Senior Executive and Marketer clients we work with around the world” said Jerome Fontaine, Fournaise’s CEO & Marketing Effectiveness Chief.
“Marketing Effectiveness Tracking & Boosting (MarkEff) is a complex game of optimisation that requires a certain type of mentality from Marketers. We are privileged to work with Senior Executive and Marketer clients who are hungry for business growth acceleration and incremental demand generation, who are ready to face the truth about their performance results (good or bad), who are open-minded and prepared to embrace the effectiveness-boosting recommendations we bring to them, who are not afraid of challenging themselves and of being challenged, and who are more interested in delivering results than playing politics or looking good. Without them Fournaise would not be where it is today, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for putting their trust in us” he added.
