Eugenie Dronneau

Business Development Manager
The Cutting Edge Agency

Having grown up in a family that owned and operated restaurants and bars in both the South East of France as well as in Paris (and being French, of course) Eugenie’s love and passion for food is palpable.

Following a career as a professional show-jumper, Eugenie moved to Spain in 2000 and entrenched herself in the hospitality sector. She relocated to the Middle East in 2009 and joined The Cutting Edge Agency after a stint at a real estate development company where she started and headed up the retail development arm.

Eugenie boasts impressive and extensive regional F&B experience and her local contact list is covetable to say the least. While Eugenie is regularly in touch with established, celebrity chefs as well as well-known, high-end F&B brands, helping them bring their expansion plans to life, she is also in contact with an array of developers, owners, investors and hotels across the Middle East in order to assist with the conceptualisation, implementation, integration and management of their F&B concepts, transforming their ideas into thriving businesses.

Eugenie is fluent in French, Spanish and English and approaches her work with a distinctly upbeat attitude, favouring out-of-the-cake-box thinking when it comes to conceptualisation. Eugenie thrives on attention to detail and thanks to her unrivalled passion for unearthing new and extraordinary opportunities in specialised F&B segments, she is able to capitalise on gaps in the market, offering all of her clients fresh and assorted opportunities and concepts.
