After five years as CEO of the FEI World Equestrian Games Normandy 2014, Fabien Grobon joins EEM as Managing Director, starting September 1, 2015.
He will now manage the team at EEM, the company founded in 2009 by Christophe Ameeuw, who remains CEO. He will continue to consolidate the development of the Longines Masters series, now on three continents and recognized as the most prestigious indoor showjumping competition worldwide.
A 2000 graduate from Insead, Fabien Grobon joined consulting firm AT Kearney as Senior Associate, and then turned his attention to the sports business.

"The arrival of Fabien in EEM is an important step in the development of our company and our projects. His experience and skills in sports management, both in the 2014 WEG and Roland Garros, will help us pursue our ambition to bring the concept of the Longines Masters to the front of the international stage,” said Christophe Ameeuw, Founder and CEO of EEM.
