Agathe Capdepon has been promoted to Arqana Communication Director, the sales company announced on Tuesday.
Capdepon began in the company's communication department in 2016. She holds degrees in literature and communication and is a qualified riding instructor. In addition, Capdepon, who previously worked at a news agency, is taking over from Alix Choppin, who will continue to collaborate with Arqana on a free-lance basis, organizing events to promote racehorse ownership in business circles. Megan Martins, in charge of digital communication, and Pauline Ritter, responsible for press relations and advertising, also work on the Arqana communications team.
“It is very much a seamless transition,” said Arqana CEO Eric Hoyeau. “We opted to promote internal resources as we are lucky to have a competent, creative and complementary team ready to take up all the required tasks. Agathe has been working consistently hard for the past four year and we are delighted to appoint her as head of communication.”
Added Agathe Capdepon, “I wish to thank Alix, alongside whom I have been learning the ropes during my first four years on the communication team, as well as Eric Hoyeau and Freddy Powell for their confidence. I am thrilled to be given this opportunity with the support of a skillful, dynamic and cohesive team.”
