Mr. Lavaud is a graduate of the National School of Theater Arts and Techniques and has been in the diplomatic corps since 1994, having also served in the Ministry of Culture. He is a Knight of the National Order of Merit (2019) and his current position in Greece is his first as Consul General.

Mr. Kelpekis presented to Mr. Lavaud the French Federation of Specialist International Trade Operators (OSCI), of which he is the Country Delegate for Greece, as well as Bretagne Commerce International (BCI), of which EuroPartenaire is an approved service provider for Greece and Cyprus. He also informed him of the links that EuroPartenaire maintains both with the Economic Service of the French Embassy in Athens and with the Business France office, since the period when EuroPartenaire was part of Team France Export (2020-23 ).
