Igor Bonnet joined the Première Vision team on September 1st, on the eve of the return of a physical Première Vision Paris show to Villepinte, and the simultaneous roll-out of the digital version of the event. Bonnet brings his international experience and industry expertise to the group as it meets the challenges of the gradual resumption of events on a global scale and the industry’s accelerated transformation. “We are very pleased with a 2022 calendar already announcing our physical and hybrid events in France and abroad. This recovery is accompanied by significant challenges for the fashion market in terms of sustainability, digitization, sourcing strategies, industrial production and more, all in a multi-speed international context. We are very happy to strengthen our Management Committee with the addition of Igor, whose priority is to assist and accompany this re-conquest phase while keeping in close step with the evolution of the industry.” said Gilles Lasbordes, Managing Director of Première Vision.
Bonnet began his career at a multinational energy company before joining Arena, an Italian performance sports brand specializing in swimwear and equipment. During his 17 years with the company, he worked on product development and innovation strategy for the group’s various subsidiaries. With a background in both marketing and engineering, his expertise will be a valuable asset for Première Vision.
