“I am very pleased to welcome Delphine Violette as Commercial and Marketing Director of France Galop,” said France Galop Managing Director Olivier Delloye. “Delphine has all the experience and skills for this position but also a lot of enthusiasm to meet the many challenges ahead. With her arrival, we will be able to accelerate the work done over the past three years for the spread of our events and the growth of revenues around our “race product”. Delphine will also participate in the new impetus we want to give to our actions in favor of existing owners and those to be conquered. Delphine succeeds Fabrice Favetto Bon, whom I would like to thank warmly.”
Added Violette, “The emotion of sport has always been at the heart of my career. I am delighted to take a new step at France Galop by taking on the magnificent challenge of valuing races as well as all activities.”
