I was born in Nantes (France) raised in Princeton (USA) and Lyon (France). Sports lover, I had a decent amateur career in Tennis and Rugby. I have been working in the entertainment business for 20 years, with 5 years as marketing product manager for video games (Atari, Wanadoo) and 15 years in both the sports equipment industry and sports event organisation. After 11 years at Babolat (tennis and badminton equipment world leader) as Brand Manager and Communications Director, I joined the 24 Hours Le Mans (+ all automotive activities of the ACO) in 2015 as Global Communications Director. I have been working for the French Ligue Nationale de rugby since 2,5 years now, managing diverse activities including 360° championships’ communications, corporate communications and event management.
