Private Sport Shop is the new Major Partner of MBS
On Monday 7th December, Yannick Léouffre, Managing Director of Private Sport Shop, and Bruno Ducasse, Managing Director of Montpellier Business School (MBS), signed a “Grand Partnership” agreement formalising the close collaboration between the famous sport private sales application and the business school.
The strengthening of an already well-established collaboration
The signing of the partnership agreement between Private Sport Shop and MBS formalizes the relationship between two players in the territory who have already been working together for several years.
“Private Sport Shop and MBS have enjoyed a lasting collaboration. 5 to 10 % of our staff comes from MBS and we like to work with students, especially on the topic of entrepreneurship, since we sponsored the last edition of Start-Up Week,” recalls Yannick Léouffre, Managing Director of Private Sport Shop.
“Our interactions have increased since 2018, notably by integrating another dimension of MBS, which is the ongoing vocational training and therefore the training of Private Sport Shop managers. Today, we are proud to structure these multiple commitments around the signing of this major partnership” adds Bruno Ducasse, Managing Director of MBS.
Recruitment, pedagogical interventions and innovation are at the heart of the partnership
As a 100% e-commerce partner, Private Sport Shop embodies the sports sector which is very popular among students. It also embodies an inspiring entrepreneurial success story for those considering joining the MBS incubator.
“To support the company’s growth, we will participate in the next MBS work-study and employment recruitment forums. But to go further than a simple commitment to recruiting MBS talent, we also plan to increase our educational interventions to share our experience with students during Career Center events and support the school’s incubator to encourage young entrepreneurs in the region” explains Yannick Léouffre.
Private Sport Shop joins Montpellier Business School’s 50 Great Partners Club.
A natural collaboration between two dynamic actors of the Montpellier area
Created in 2011 in Montpellier, PSS now operates in several European countries from Montpellier. “The international ambitions of Private Sport Shop are naturally aligned with the global reach of MBS, which attracts talents of 40 different nationalities to Montpellier and has 17,000 graduates in 70 countries” says André Deljarry, President of MBS.
