Pierre A. M’Pelé, better known as Pam Boy, has been named GQ France’s head of editorial content, succeeding former editor-in-chief Olivier Lalanne, who left Condé Nast as the company revamped its global editorial structure.
Pam Boy will report to Adam Baidawi, GQ’s deputy global editorial editor and head of editorial content for British GQ. GQ is leg globally by American GQ editor-in-chief Will Welch.
