Catherine Charmet, markets manager for TV France International, passed away Monday 20th November in Paris.
Catherine Charmet, who accompanied the audiovisual exporters for over 20-years at the heart of TV France International, passed away due to an accident 20th November, at the age of 53. Her extraordinary personality and energy touched everyone who had the good fortune to meet her.
Hervé Michel, president of TV France International reacted with these words following the news of her passing:
"I have known Catherine since she arrived at TV France in the mid-1990s, at the beginning of our association. She was one of the first to join us and supported our development with unparalleled enthusiasm. All our members are fully aware of her devotion and loyalty through the international events she organized with such talent, authority and good humor. To the question ‘How’s Catherine?’ she invariably replied, ‘Couldn’t be better.’ And that is the memory we keep of her today.
All those at TV France have lost a passionate and devoted colleague, and above all a friend, and they join in the grief of her husband, two daughters and her mother."
The entire Festival’s team also reunite in the grief of Catherine Charmet’s family, colleagues and friends.
