Event report

Congratulations and Thanks!

Our French-American Business Gala 2019 was a great success with 200 attendees from both North and South Carolina.

We were delighted to welcome North Carolina Secretary of Commerce Anthony Copeland, Mr. Vincent Hommeril, the Consul General of France in Atlanta, and Mr. Chuck Bundy, Deputy Director - Key Accounts and Special Projects, South Carolina Department of Commerce and many more distinguished guests.

The attendees represented no less than 29 French companies located in NC and SC and we had French VIPS working for 48 different companies in the two states.

Ambassador Jim Cain was our host extraordinaire and he orchestrated the Award ceremony masterfully. Our 23 nominees were honored by the guests and the following companies received awards:


Thank you to all who participated and made the evening such a success! A special thank you to all those who came from far away, Atlanta and Augusta, GA, Greenville, Marion, Columbia and Charleston, SC; Charlotte, Greensboro and Wilmington, NC.

And a special thank you to our sponsors, the artists, Sidecar Social Club and the SKEMA Business School student volunteers without whom this whole event would not have taken place!
