Managing Partner - Par Excellence

Guillaume Bouchez has been working on an international canvas for the last 20 years, developing business opportunities across the US and Europe for global enterprises in event management, hospitality, design and mass media. After specializing in sales and marketing, he deliberately travelled far and wide to broaden his mind and learn how to adapt enthusiastically into widely differing environments.

His experiences embrace organizing exclusive events on the French Riviera for a world-renowned private chef, developing digital exhibits for one of the leading event companies, creating customized campaigns and brand content for media giant CBS, to launching a flagship European restaurant for a major hospitality group. All his achievements contain the common element of his lifelong love of artistic expression – from music and painting to film production and photography – which he continually renews by applying any time off to go trekking around the globe.

In 2018 Guillaume met Charles Jouffre in New York, a famous French upholsterer/entrepreneur who created Par Excellence, a collective of French artisans with strong know-how who wanted to join forces to enter the America market. Seduced by the partners, their passion and ambition Guillaume decided to invest alongside the Jouffre family and became managing partner. Since then other artisans joined Par Excellence, Guillaume opened an office in Paris and a showroom in Noho in Manhattan soon to be redesigned by the famous architect Thomas Pheasant.
