Amélie Morel is the new President of Silmo

The Board of Directors of Silmo, the association that is traditionally responsible for organizing Silmo, has unanimously appointed Amélie Morel president of the Paris fair. Amélie Morel, communications director at Morel, the French company that has been operating in the sector for over 130 years, will be in charge of the 50th edition of the fair.
Together with brothers Jérôme and Francis, Amélie, she runs the company that has been in the family for four generations. Ms. Morel has the full support of all the members of the association’s Board and will continue the work of enriching Silmo and the sector that was begun by Philippe Lafont, who died tragically in March.
After her appointment, Amélie Morel stated: “This appointment is an honor for the Morel family and myself in particular.
It is a difficult task that Philippe handled with huge dedication and professionalism. The unanimous confidence and support of the members of the Board will enable me to continue along the path outlined by Guy Charlot and ensure that for the optical and eyewear world Paris Silmo will always be the international event of reference”.
