Charles Dubois

Partnership development

After more than 15 years in the automotive sector, working in agencies for such prestigious brands as Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Abarth, Honda and many others, or directly for one of the most emblematic manufacturers: Porsche, I have built up a unique professional network that shares the same values:

The last few years at Porsche as marketing manager for the Paris network (Porsche distribution) then Head of Events & Brand Experience for Porsche France, working closely with renowned partners (Chopard, Tag Heuer, Louis Roederer...), or hand in hand with 5* establishments in the 4 corners of France, finding unique locations always with the aim of offering a unique experience, have given me a unique knowledge of the territory and its potential.

I'm convinced that this know-how and this network will be a real asset in supporting the development of Ateliers Héritagebike.

As a motorbike and bike enthusiast, I'm more than convinced of the incredible success of the Héritage Spirit Scrambler and the whole range of bikes that can meet the different needs of our future customers.

Making the most of your mobility makes perfect sense with an offer like this!

Events manager

I've been a keen sportswoman since I was very young: mountain biking, climbing, hiking and horse riding. I very quickly caught the competition bug and in this environment I was able to get my foot in the door of events. That's how I came to organise equestrian competitions, which allowed me to combine my passion for horses with my attraction for this profession;
Interested in the top end of the market, I decided to focus my studies in this direction with an International Bachelor's degree in Luxury and Tourism. I then worked in private aviation as an operations agent.
It was through my studies and experience that my attraction for top-of-the-range events was confirmed, and I naturally continued my studies with a Masters in Events, working on a sandwich course with Ateliers HeritageBike;

The tone was set: La Panière now has 42 bakeries in the Rhône Alpes region, has just opened its first shop in Switzerland and employs 500 people.

The snack bar is gradually replacing the bakery in response to the new eating habits of its customers. In May 2022, La Panière became a company with a mission, formalising the social and environmental commitments that have guided it since its creation.
