Frédéric Maus, Managing Director, WSN Group,
president of the jury
The son of a retailer, Frédéric Maus was immersed in the world of fashion from his early childhood and therefore gravitated quite naturally towards this environment and the department stores. A graduate of the Montpellier Business School, he worked with Bon Marché and Printemps before joining La Redoute, where he took a radical digital turn by setting up the business development department to accompany and follow the emergence of new businesses: Marketplace, Brand Boutique and La Redoute Travel.
Used to making fundamental changes and convinced of the importance of digital technology, he was appointed head of WSN with the task of providing services and solutions for everyone involved in the fashion industry. In repositioning Who’s Next and Premiere Classe, he was keen to inspire new confidence among final consumers. Based on the meetings and discussions he has held during his first year with WSN, Frédéric has guided the company towards new opportunities and challenges.
WSN is the organiser of the Who’s Next and Premiere Classe trade shows, which are the leaders for international fashion events, with 4 events a year at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre in Paris and a presence at the Tuileries Gardens during Fashion Week, a key opportunity to discover unique brands and detect the trends for the coming season.
