Jean-Pierre Thiollet (born December 9, 1956 in Poitiers) is a French writer and journalist.

Usually living in Paris, he is the author of numerous books and one of the national leaders[1] of CEDI,[2] a European employers' organization.

In 1978, he was admitted to Saint-Cyr (Coëtquidan).[3]

During the 1980s and until the mid-1990s, he was a member of a French Press organization for Music-hall, Circus, Dance and Arts presided by a well known journalist in France, Jacqueline Cartier, with authors or notable personalities as Pierre Cardin, Guy des Cars, and Francis Fehr.

From 1982 to 1986, he was victim of illegal wiretaps (organized by the French President François Mitterrand), for his telephone conversations with the French writer and polemist Jean-Edern Hallier.[4]

At the end of the 1980s, he was known too as vice-president of Amiic (World Real Estate Investment Organization, Geneva)[5] and was a lecturer, with Pierre Salinger, François Spoerry, Paul-Loup Sulitzer and other important people, of some international meetings of this organization (vanished in 1997).

At the beginning of the 1990s, he was, with Gilbert Prouteau, one of the renowned writers and art critics of a French magazine, L'Amateur d'Art.

From 1988 to 1994, he was editor-in-chief for Le Quotidien de Paris (Daily Press Group).[6]

In 1994, he was the author allowed to interview Gérard Mulliez, one of the wealthiest and powerful people in France, for the book The Customer Driven Company — Moving from Talk to Action (translated in French as La Dynamique du client) by Richard C. Whiteley.

In 1997, he played a discreet and influential role in the parliamentary election in Toulon as communications director and member of the Mayor's Cabinet. He was arbitrarily dismissed the morning after the successful poll and then published Le Chevallier à découvert (Laurens, Paris), a strongly suggestive and humorous book some months later. In 1997 too, he was, with Émile Gardaz, among the personalities when the township of Delphi appointed the renowned environmentalist Franz Weber a Citoyen d'honneur.

In 1999, he co-produced Studies (Chopin) recorded by Radoslav Kvapil.[7] From 1999 to 2001, he was the Company Secretary of Mea Publications Limited (United Kingdom)[8] producing both a print product, Ici Londres magazine, and an Internet product,[9]

He was, with Alain Decaux, Frédéric Beigbeder and Richard Millet, one of the guest writers at the 2005 Beirut Book Fair (BIEL) for Je m'appelle Byblos (My Name Is Byblos).

In April 2006, he was directly concerned with the business resumption of France Soir but the entrepreneur Jean-Pierre Brunois was finally chosen by the Commercial Court of Lille.[10]

Since 2007, he has been a member of the World Grand Family of Lebanon (RJ Lebanon Club).[11]

From 2009 to 2012, he worked as one of the France-Soir editors.[12]

In 2010, he was among the petition's signatures for Roman Polanski when the film director was temporarily arrested by Swiss police at the request of U.S authorities.[13]

On 13 May 2013, he was one of the notable French people among the audience of the concert given by Dariga Nazarbayeva with the Orchestre Lamoureux directed by Dmitry Yablonsky and co-organized by Count Pierre Sheremetev, at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
