The 48-year-old native of France studied at the University of Angers in France and earned her doctorate at the Sorbonne in Paris and the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. She later expanded her expertise with part-time studies in business administration and operational management, as well as her participation in the Museion management program.
Foulon brings with her many years of professional experience from the museum sector, the non-profit sector and the private sector. As head of communications and art education at the Max Ernst Museum Brühl of the LVR, as manager of the Alexander Tutsek Foundation and as head of communications & development at the Munich art auction house Karl & Faber, she gained experience in international media work, digitally developed the offer of the houses, initiated numerous projects and successfully demonstrated her leadership skills, as KMB ZPK writes in a statement. In her position at Karl & Faber, she has driven innovative business models for three years and, particularly in digital communication, has broken new ground with her team in order to position and strengthen the house on the international art market.
Her great passion, however, is still museums, which is why she is very much looking forward to the new challenges and the collaboration in Bern, according to the press release.
