History and profile
Le Point was founded in September 1972[1][2][3] by a group of journalists who had, one year earlier, left the editorial team of L'Express,[4][5] which was then owned by Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber, a député (member of parliament) of the Parti Radical, a centrist party.
The company operating Le Point, Société d'exploitation de l'hebdomadaire Le Point (SEBDO Le Point) has its head office in the 14th arrondissement of Paris.[6][7] The founders emphasize on readers' need and it became the aim of Le Point[4] which is published weekly on Thursdays by Le Point Communication.[8][9]
After a fairly difficult start in September 1972, the magazine quickly challenged L'Express. The editorial team of spring 1972 found financial backing with group Hachette and was then directed by Claude Imbert. Other journalists making up the team were: Jacques Duquesne, Henri Trinchet, Pierre Billard, Robert Franc, Georges Suffert. The management included Olivier Chevrillon, Pdg and Philippe Ramond. It has changed ownership several times. Gaumont cinema group bought the magazine in 1981.[10] In 1997 the magazine was acquired by its current owner Artémis, a French investment group founded and owned by the billionaire businessman François Pinault.[10][11] In 2001 the logo and layout of Le Point was changed.[10] The weekly recruited journalists from the Parisianpress and relied on its ability to redefine the genre. It modeled itself closely on Time Magazine and Newsweek.
Le Point has a conservative, center-right stance without any political affiliation.[5][6][11] It publishes a list regarding the reputation of companies, Baromètre d’Image des Grandes Entreprises.[12]
