GHISLAIN, SUBEA SOUTHERN EUROPE SALES MANAGER

He is keen on snorkeling. Learn more about him ...

I’m 43 years old. I have been with Decathlon for 17 years. I was always attracted by water and very quickly, I was able to snorkel a little everywhere in various corners of the world (Philippines, Indonesia, Red Sea, etc…).
I had the occasion to take my first dive before but I am, above all, a snorkeling enthusiast.
When I joined the Subea team, I started to practice scuba diving and I passed my PADI Open Water level.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT SUBEA ?

What is your background ?

I had the chance to join Subea while it was starting out 2 years ago. First as a retail supplier with the supply challenge of EasyBreath, and now, for the past year, as a Sales Manager for Europe with a focus on Spain and Italy. There are 3 of us in the Subea sales management team and I was appointed to coordinate this small team.
Our main goal is to sustainably develop the market share of our sports in each country, each Decathlon store of the Europe zone. Based on our listening to our teams and our sports customers, along with our knowledge of the diving market, we build and validate the Decathlon offer in close cooperation with the project teams. And on the shorter term, we animate the marketing strategies of Subea and work to stimulate everyday sales in our stores. We are, in a way, the link between our stores and the brand.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL MEMORY OF AN UNDERWATER EXPERIENCE ?

My best memory remains the time when I first introduced my children to snorkeling with the help of the Easybreath. At the time of their first trip together, I was delighted to see all 3 of them marvel at the discovery of an underwater world. It was a great moment of happiness and sharing to see the sparkle in their eyes when they observed the fauna and the flora. Since then, our Easybreath masks always accompany us during all our escapades.
