Jean-Michel Paquient succeeds Thomas Teissier, who wishes to focus on real estate and investment projects.

Thomas Teissier, General Manager of Sherco Motorcycles for 8 years, has played a significant role in the company’s development.

After these successful years, he has decided to embark on a new adventure within the group, focusing on real estate and investment.

We wish him the best of luck in his new endeavor.

He is succeeded by Jean-Michel Paquient in the same position.

Having entered the professional motorcycle world at the age of 19, this self-made man gained experience working with the largest motorcycle importer in France, dealing with brands like Moto Morini, Ducati, Husqvarna, Gasgas, MV Agusta, and more recently Royal Enfield. He has also achieved success in the quad and electric bicycle industry.

A multiple-time Enduro motorcycle champion in France, with a background in sales, he also possesses technical expertise and experience as a product manager, providing him with a comprehensive understanding of our industry.

We are thrilled to announce his recruitment and his arrival within the Sherco family.


Jean-Michel Paquient:

“It is with immense pride and tremendous motivation for me to join the ranks of Sherco Motorcycles alongside Marc Teissier and the entire team he has surrounded himself with.

I have been influenced and educated by great figures in the motorcycle industry such as Marcel Seurat and Frédéric Fourgeaud, with relationships connected to major brands, and most importantly, the fundamental values I hold dear: hard work, dedication, professionalism, all mixed with the passion that fuels our daily lives.

Sherco’s journey is extraordinary: starting with a prototype motorcycle in 1997 and building, 15 years later, bikes that are often equal to or even superior to European or Japanese competitors and successfully selling them in more than 88 countries. This leads me to believe that I am once again going to experience something unique alongside a great man and a fantastic team of 180 people who are leaving an indelible mark globally.”

Jean-Michel’s arrival will enable us to strengthen the Sherco family, and his expertise in various segments of the motorcycle world will be crucial.

Significant projects are underway in areas where people might not necessarily expect…
