Sofitel comes to Vatel

The Sofitel brand was presented to Vatel Lyon students in December, and a few days later, representatives of Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port presented the Accor brand to Vatel Nimes students.


On Thursday, December 5th, Mr. Iacovino, the General Manager and Mrs. Massacrier, the Human Resources Manager of the Sofitel Lyon Bellecour Hotel came to present the Sofitel brand to Vatel Lyon students.

Just a few days later, Mr. Allard and Ms. Berton from the Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port HR department came to Vatel Nimes to present the Accor brand to students in Nimes.

Hello Mr. Alllard. Just a few days ago, Christelle Massacrier, the Human Resources Manager from the Sofitel Lyon Bellecour answered our questions on the presentation she gave in Vatel Lyon. She told us that she had spent ten years in the Marseille Sofitel where you have been the Human Resources Manager for four years now. So, now it’s your turn.  If you could sum up the ‘Sofitel spirit’ in just three words, what would they be?

  • Elegance,
  • Tailor made, 
  • Detail-oriented.


What would you like to say about the appointment of Sebastien Bazin as the CEO of the Accor Group?

This is a new lease on life for Accor Group: 

  • A redefinition of Group strategy, 
  • A new organization that is closer to operations,
  • New dynamics taking innovation and new technologies into account,
  • A clarification of hotel and real estate positions in our Group.  


What jobs and career opportunities did you present to the students?

We presented two functional jobs: Administrative and Financial Manager and Human Resources Manager. We also presented Accor Group as well as the Sofitel Luxury brand project.


What advice for the future would you like to give to Vatel students?

  • Do your job because you love it,
  • Make sure you use your professional network efficiently,
  • Try to work abroad at the beginning of your career,
  • Draw up a constantly updated hotel product intelligence and awareness file by using new technologies as well as reading professional and general public papers and magazines.
