Early lifeEdit

After completing his business studies, Yves launched out into the video games business with his four brothers and in 1986, at the age of 26, founded Ubisoft Entertainment. At that point in time, Ubisoft was a third party publishers' game distribution company.

GrowthEdit

Between 1989 and 1990, Yves set up the first subsidiaries outside France, first in the United Kingdom, then in the United States and Germany, the three countries which represented the largest video games market in the west. In 1994, the first integrated production studio was opened in France, aimed at producing high quality games within a time-limited scale. In 1996, the company was introduced on the Paris Stock Exchange and the two major production studios opened in Shanghai and Montreal.

ExpansionEdit

In July 2000, Ubisoft, still eager to expand, bought out Red Storm Entertainment, the game publisher holding the Tom Clancy license. In 2000 Yves became the overall production and distribution manager of Ubisoft. Currently, he heads Ubisoft, a company with over 6,000 employees that has become one of the world leaders in the video games business. The turnover for 1999-2000 exceeded a billion United States dollars.
