Isabelle Chevallier named Weezevent EVP Europe
Weezevent has appointed Isabelle Chevallier as executive vice-president, Europe, working across its offices in France, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
Chavellier comes to the Dijon-based software company – which offers solutions for ticket sales, access control and cashless payments – from RFID company Intellitix, which she joined as European head of business development in January 2016. She previously spent 16 years at Sony Music Entertrainment.
Weezevent, founded in 2008, launched in the UK and Ireland last March, following the opening in 2016 of an office in Switzerland.
“Weezevent has all the ingredients to succeed internationally”
Commenting on the strength of Weezevent’s SaaS (software as a service) ticketing solution, Chevallier says: “This is a high-performing and robust solution that has already proven itself across major events in France. With a complete range of services from ticketing to access control and cashless payment, and a very competitive offering, Weezevent has all the ingredients to succeed internationally.”
“We are convinced that we provide the best answer to the challenges of live events,” adds Pierre-Henri Deballon, CEO and co-founder of Weezevent. “Our challenge now is to increase awareness around our product before we can prove ourselves on the field – this is where Isabelle comes into play, and her expertise of working in Europe will be key.”
