Meet the Team: Who Runs the World?

GIRLS. Obviously. You’ve probably seen them walking around events, drink in one hand and phone in the other, effortlessly saying hello and greeting guests like the bar is their living room and all 200 of us are their closest friends. What you don’t see is all the hustle that goes into making all of these events run smoothly time and time again, across 4 countries and 3 time zones, while speaking 4 languages between them all.Our Cofounders May & Eliz and CEO/COO started Apéros Frenchies in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany in 2015. It is thanks to their love of travel, cultural exchange, and a desire to share the concept of Apéro with their expat community that we have all these awesome after-work events. It was at one of these events that they met Fanny, new to Frankfurt, and the rest was history! All three have chosen to make the world their home.
May is currently based in Frankfurt Am Main, Germany. She’s most likely to be found close to the music, so if you run into her at an Aperos Frenchies event feel free to say hello in French, English, Spanish, or German!Next time you’re in the Frankfurt Am Main area be sure to check out one of her fave spots, Restaurant/Bar Vaivai.
Pro tip: Don’t skip the drink list, be sure to try the Basil Smash at your next apéro with friends!
Her favorite quote? “Someday everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself: everything happens for a reason”
Eliz is currently based in Paris, and if you run into her at an Apéros Frenchies event feel free to say hello in French, English, German, or Spanish. She keeps all of the behind the scenes logistics running smoothly, and makes sure that the whole team is keeping it together.Next time you’re in Paris be sure to check out one of her favorite spots, Restaurant Friends & Family in the 9eme arrondissement. They feature traditional french gastronomy at fair prices, and they take reservations!Her favorite quote? “Quand on veut, on peut!”
Fanny is our Community Manager in charge of Communication & Sponsoring. Although she is currently based in Lyon, if you follow us on Instagram you already know chances are high you’ll run into her at any of our Apéros Frenchies locations! We’d tell you where she’s headed next, but that would ruin the surprise… Instead, be on the lookout and ready to say hello in either French or English at the next event! Next time you make it down to Lyon be sure to check out the 4th arrondissement the “village” of Croix-Rousse. Be sure to check out the restaurants, bars, and pubs along the boulevard and in the Croix-Rousse square. We’ve even found this awesome resource for all our English speaking expat friends. Her Favourite Quote? “Never have any regrets: do it!”
Clara is the newest addition to the Apéros Frenchies team working on Business Development and Marketing. Originally from the USA, she has been living in Europe for the past 4 years. First in Cologne, Germany and now in Paris, France! If you run into her at an Apéros Frenchies event be sure to say hello in English, French, or German. She is FULL of recommendations on places to go, eat, drink, and dance but her favorites are Terrass rooftop bar in the 18eme for the incredible views of Paris, BigLove in the 3eme for the (gluten-free!) pizza, and anything on Rue Montorgueil for a casual after-work apéro. Her Favourite Quote? “I have discovered in life that there are ways of getting almost anywhere you want to go if you really want to go” – Langston Hughes
