International Women’s Rights Day at Chabé: over 100 years of family heritage

On the occasion of International Women’s Rights Day, Chabé, expert in bespoke mobility since 1921, is highlighting the place occupied by women within the Group, while underlining its commitment to professional equality.

Since its foundation over 100 years ago by Maurice Chabé, the family business has been marked by female governance, first embodied by Eliane Lo Jacomo in 1959, followed by her daughter, Agnès Lo Jacomo in 1989, currently Chairman of the Group’s Strategic Committee.

In an interview, Frédérike Dupont-Pauchet, Human Resources Director, emphasized: “At Chabé, gender is not really an issue. When recruiting new staff, we give priority to candidates with expertise and a strong customer service culture, without worrying about whether they are male or female. This rule applies more to positions of responsibility. ”


Of the 15 members of the CODIR, 6 are women. That’s why, on the occasion of International Women’s Rights Day, some of them share their thoughts and advice on professional emancipation, and talk about the importance of this day for them.


Chabé Agnès Lo JacomoAgnès Lo Jacomo, President of the Strategic Committee: ” International Women’s Rights Day has long held a very special significance for Chabé, and for me personally: as far as I know, it is the only transport company – an almost exclusively male environment in the 20th century – to have been chaired for 60 years by women, from 1959 to 1993 by my mother, and from 1993 to 2019 by myself.

For us, it has always been obvious that women could exercise the same responsibilities as men.

Today, as President of Chabé’s Strategic Committee, I am delighted to see the progress that has been made in terms of gender equality, while recognising the challenges that still exist.

I am still very proud to work for Chabé, a company that has been family-owned from the outset and that values diversity and inclusion. 


Chabé Leslie MoicaLeslie Moica, Group Sales and Marketing Director: “ As the Group’s Sales and Marketing Director, I’m proud to contribute to the development of a company that values the skills of everyone, regardless of gender. It is by normalising these behaviours in the workplace that the young women of tomorrow will be able to develop their full potential.

While this day is an opportunity to celebrate the developments in our society in terms of gender equality, it is also a reminder that we still have a long way to go.


Chabé Frédérike Dupont PauchetFrédérike Dupont-Pauchet, Group Human Resources Director: “As HR Director, I’m proud to promote an environment at Chabé where women are recognized for their skills and achievements, rather than being judged according to gender stereotypes. However, we must remain vigilant and continue to defend women’s rights, because even in the most progressive environments, inequality insidiously persists. Women’s Day marks both a recognition of the progress made and a reminder to continue the fight for total equality. The women and men of Chabé must continue to advance together!”


Chabé Mélanie QuillierMélanie Quillier, Director of the Events Department: “As a woman, I’m obviously sensitive to the date of March 8, which reminds us each year that what we take for granted today has not always been so.

International Women’s Rights Day is an opportunity to celebrate the battles we have fought and the victories we have already achieved, while keeping our eyes on the road ahead towards gender equality.

I’m proud to be Events Director for a company like Chabé, which knows how to recognize and value the skills and potential of each individual, far from the stereotypes sometimes associated with the world of transport.


Chabé Nivin SalemNivin Salem, International Operations Director: “While the contributions and potential of women are worth recognizing every day, International Women’s Day is a day to reflect and celebrate the progress made in empowering women. It also gives an opportunity to recognize what still needs to be achieved.

I am proud to be working at Chabé where women have been in leadership positions for many decades. As a female Director at Chabé with a multicultural background, I am pleased to be able to support Chabé in the continued quest of gender equality.”


At Chabé, International Women’s Rights Day is an opportunity to reaffirm our strong commitment to professional equality and diversity.
