Vincent Bolloré, a leading French businessman, is relatively unknown in Britain, but he plans to change that. Bolloré Group is using the launch tomorrow of its electric car rental service in London — a replica of its Autolib’ scheme in Paris — to host a gathering of the bosses of his various financial interests.

Executives from Vivendi, which he chairs, Universal Music and Havas, his advertising group, are expected for a bash at the group’s grand new offices in Marylebone. It’s a French invasion.
