Changes and new faces in the EBU secretariat

After a period of transition, the EBU secretariat is back to full strength and we now announce the following news to finalise this situation.

Firstly, we would like to introduce you to Leslie Nachbaum our new Administrative Assistant who will replace Valérie Bertrand-Vivancos, our Membership Officer, on all the administrative tasks of the office.

In terms of professional experience, Leslie worked in a private surgical clinic for 15 years as a management assistant, referent communication and a Human Resources Assistant.

After all those years in the same work, she wanted to change for a new experience. Leslie is pleased to have joined the office and her new position.

Finally, after this brief introduction, we wish Leslie the best of luck in this new adventure in EBU.

Welcome on board, Leslie !

We would also like to inform you about Valérie Bertrand Vivancos’ change of position within our organisation.

Most of you will have known Valerie for the past 7 years as EBU Administrative Assistant.  With her deep knowledge of EBU and its members network, in agreement with the Board, she has now moved on to the role of Membership Officer and will coordinate interactions between and with members.

Before moving to Paris, Valerie lived, studied and worked for 11 years in England, she holds a Master's degree in English and American Studies, specialising in Civil Rights, from the Sorbonne University. In her own time, Valérie is also very active in areas of inclusion and intersectionality. Considering the above, she is particularly and ethically committed to facilitate and improve the EBU Members network, as well as support the EBU leadership in implementing reflections and actions.

Feel free to reach out to her at with any query or comment you may have.
