Philippe Pinoli is the 2015 France Monopoly Champion and competed at the 2015 World Championship in Macau in September 2015.

Tony's bio from the 2015 World Championship Press Kit:

Philippe (44 years old) has been playing MONOPOLY for 37 years of his life. Despite playing for many years, he has only owned one board, the classic board—his favorite version of MONOPOLY. Philippe’s strategy is to be friendly with other players to gain a positive image and easy deals with others and not being afraid to invest and take risks; going all-in with buying hotels instead of a more careful "3 houses" approach to gameplay. His favorite part of playing MONOPOLY is that it is fun, quick and wild. He enjoys most that at the end of the game, there can be only one winner.
