Julien Camus, President
As Trade Attaché for wines and spirits at the French Embassy in Washington DC (2004-2006), corresponding with national importers of French wine as part of his mission, he witnessed the US wine industry's call for French wine promotion and education and decided to do something in response to this need.
By way of answer, he founded the French Wine Society (August 2005), an organization dedicated to the promotion of French wine and culture through education. Julien invited national importers of French wine to join the organization as Industry Members and 25 key French wine importers did so immediately. Since 2006, he fully devoted his energy to developing the organization and its network of program providers across North America. Julien holds a Master Degree in Business Administration with a major in International Marketing from the Strasbourg Management School.
