Focus on Chloé Fournier, KEDGE graduate and founder of Welkeys

A 2011 graduate of KEDGE, Chloé Fournier founded Welkeys in 2014, a high-end seasonal rental agency. Welkeys now has 30 employees between Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille and Mégève and is looking for new talent.

After graduating from KEDGE in 2011 with a Grandes Ecoles degree and a HEC preparatory course, Chloé Fournier worked for 3 years in the advertising group WPP (Young and Rubicam, Wunderman) in London, Singapore, Sao Paulo and Paris in digital marketing.


In 2014, she founded Welkeys, first as a platform for connecting Bnb owners and concierges and which became in 2017, a property management and concierge company.


Today, Welkeys is 30 employees between Paris, Bordeaux, Marseille and Mégève, 25 city manager partners and more than 1200 mandates under management in more than 30 destinations in France.

Chloé, can you tell us a little about your time at KEDGE?

I joined KEDGE on the Marseille campus in 2009 after a preparatory class for the grandes écoles. Very involved in the school's associative life, I was during my two years the communication director of Citadingue, the guide to good places to go in Marseille and Aix en Provence. I then left for 2 years abroad as an intern in Sao Paulo, London and Singapore in a trainee program within the advertising group WPP to return to Paris in 2011 and start a job at Wunderman (WPP group) in Paris in digital marketing.

Welkeys, the young growing company
