WSN Développement appoints Aude Chabanier as Director of Who's Next

WSN Développement has added to its senior management team: Aude Chabanier joined the organiser of Parisian fashion shows Who’s Next and Première Classe as Director of Who’s Next. She replaces former Sales Director Camille Descollonges.

Aude Chabanier started in her new role on 6th June - WSN Développement

Who’s Next stated that Chabanier, who started in her new role on 6th June, is tasked with "implementing the product strategy (market positioning, marketing and communication plans, new projects' launch), with leading the [French] and international commercial expansion, as well as with producing business plans and budgets and supervising the show's organisation and logistics, all of this in close collaboration with the group's cross-functional departments."

Aude Chabanier was formerly the Sales Director of SIAL, a French B2B trade show for the agri-food industry, part of the Comexposium group, which is one of co-owners of Who's Next, with Xavier Clergerie and Bertrand Foäche. Chabanier will "add new energy to the show's management," wrote WSN Développement in a press release.

The French fashion show organiser will stage the next edition of Who's Next on 8th-11th September at the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre in Paris. Aude Chabanier will of course attend the event, though her contribution will be more evident in the show's subsequent session, scheduled at the start of 2018.

Chabanier’s appointment comes after two other major new entries at WSN Développement in 2016: that of Etienne Cochet as General Manager, and that of Jean-Marc André as Marketing and Communication Director.
