Marc  Hivernat
Chief Executive Director

Marc Hivernat is a cultural engineer.

Combining a creative nature and a managerial culture, Marc Hivernat is passionate about culture in all its forms of expression.

In 30 years, he has been involved in a wide variety of sectors such as the performing arts, historical and cultural heritage, artistic collections, publishing, digital industries, merchandising of derivative products, organisation of exhibitions or events…

In particular, he has built up a solid experience in the development of cultural projects with high added value as a project director in the Cultural Engineering Agency of the Caisse des Dépôts Group, as associate director of Rhizomes, an agency specialised in the enhancement of the cultural content of brands, and as managing director of the Lafayette Chambrun Foundation.

Whether from a strategic, marketing or communication point of view, his expertise lies in understanding culture as a lever for economic, social and environmental development.

Marc Hivernat joined ATELIERS ADELINE RISPAL in 2018 as development director to develop the agency’s strategic approach and design management: in this sense he is involved in all projects in the designing phase.
