After weeks devoted to recruitment, with sometimes some discrepancies in the profile of candidates between the founding members of France Montagnes (National Association of Mayors of Mountain Resorts; Ski Areas of France and National Union of French Ski Instructors), the organization of tourism promotion of the French massifs has chosen François Gaillard as general manager where he will replace Jean-Marc Silva who will retire this winter.

François Gaillard, a recognized professional, held the position of director of Only Lyon Tourisme et Congrés, the Rhône prefecture tourist office since 2004. “This choice was made in collegiality. For François Gaillard, it is also a return to his roots and to the mountains, who held positions in tourism in Savoy before this wonderful time in Lyon, ”explains Jean-Luc Boch, president of the ANMSM and of France Montagnes. He formalized this appointment to his board of directors on Wednesday afternoon.

In tandem with Jean-Marc Silva until February 2022

Before the Lyon adventure and after studying languages ​​at Savoie-Mont-Blanc and post-graduate management studies at the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, this Savoyard held the position of Managing Director of Savoie Grand Revard in the early 2000s and was managed from 2002 to 2004 the tourist office of the Grande Plagne.

François Gaillard must arrive in post within a month and must work in tandem with Jean-Marc Silva who will officially retire in February 2022.

Just before formalizing its departure, Lyon was crowned the second best urban destination in Europe.

We can imagine, if his agenda allows it, that François Gaillard will take his first steps in the function on November 19 during the press conference to launch the season of France Montagnes organized in Paris at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
