Founders

Les Confidents was created by Françoise Byé and Agnès Colmet Daâge, both of whom come from impressive international backgrounds, particularly in the development of export for European companies, and are eager to build on the lessons learned from their professional experiences. Their drive to facilitate a meeting between exceptional European manufacturers and Interior Architects led them to create the sourcing agency, Les Confidents.

francoise
Françoise Byé was born in France. She grew up living in an international world, thanks to her father’s diplomatic career. After her studies in marketing and international commerce, she immediately expatriated to the Ivory Coast, then to South Africa, Europe and the Middle East Region. Throughout her career, she always worked to help for international development of French companies. At the time of her last position in Dubai, where she stayed for 6 years, she was the Director of a French Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It was there where she realised the people’s attraction for the French way of life, then and still today, and decided to create the agency Les Confidents. Upon her return to Europe, she realised this exciting project with Agnès Colmet Daâge.
Françoise is married and has 3 wonderful children.
