PARIS Chauvet, a leading maker of entertainment and architectural lighting, has named Alain Minet Marketing Manager of Chauvet Europe. Alain, who comes to Chauvet after successful tenures as a marketing executive at Serge Ferrari and Philips, will work out of the company’s recently opened Paris office.
“We have enjoyed exponential growth in Europe,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “Our French and German offices, which opened in January, have both been off to incredibly fast starts, while our UK and Belgium facilities have been growing at a rapid pace. Given this growth, we needed someone who could oversee our expanding marketing efforts. Alain fits this need perfectly.”

For his part, Alain is eager to build on the success Chauvet has enjoyed in Europe. “This is a wonderful opportunity,” he said. “Chauvet has established itself as a leader in our industry. The company has a well-deserved reputation for quality and for advancing technology in new ways. I am excited to be part of a team that places such an emphasis on innovation.”
