Home Team


Evok’s success is based on a closely-knit team of experts: operations management, human resources, communications/marketing, sales, and finance. These teams work together across departments in each entity of the group. Responsiveness and flexibility, inventiveness and creativity have allowed Evok to reinvent the luxury hotel.

Emmanuel Sauvage Co-founder & CEO

The hotel world is a wonderful playground for Emmanuel Sauvage. He has experienced every aspect of it, having studied at a hotel management high school before moving into management. Having taken the helm at one of the Hôtels de Paris at age 24, he joined Guy de Durfort and managed the opening of the Burgundy.
In 2014, he drew the attention of Pierre Bastid and Romain Yzerman, with whom he co-founded Evok. He is just as involved in transforming an establishment as in managing its daily operations. His guiding themes are quality service, friendly staff, and creativity.

Madeleine Sadin Deputy general director

20 years of hotel experience alongside Emmanuel Sauvage have shaped her passion for her profession. She worked in several establishments, climbing the ladder to several managerial positions. She took part in her first opening at the Burgundy as operations manager. In 2015, she joined Evok as deputy general director. Her areas of expertise are quality, sales, yield, and operations.

Anthony Hamet Chief Financial Officer

After studying corporate finance in business school, he joined the hotel industry, working at Bristol Paris as an accountant and cost manager, then as comptroller. This allowed him to perfect his expertise in budget creation and management, earnings statement analysis, and the implementation of decision-making tools. He joined Evok in 2017 where, building on his expertise, he participated in three openings and contributed to creating and managing the financial structures for all the units in the group.

Solenn Gubri Director of Marketing and Communications

Before discovering the hotel world, her 15 years of experience at LVMH’s Grande Épicerie de Paris — first as marketing manager, then as marketing and image director — forged her expertise in the field of marketing and communications. It's just a small step from the world of luxury retail to the hotel industry, and in 2018 she joined Evok. Her mission is to direct the group’s marketing and communications strategy, from press relations to social media, and including project management and artistic direction.

Alice Monteiro CEO Personal Assistant

Following an initial career in the airline industry, she later diversifies as head of general services for a communication and marketing company, then as associate manager of a Parisian restaurant. Backed by 10 years as executive assistant, she continuously reinforces her capacity for adaptation as well as her coordination and organizational skills. She joined Evok in 2021 and supports Emmanuel Sauvage in his daily management of the group.

Caroline Krancenblum Director of Sales

After studying business in Paris and California, she embraced the hotel world with operational experience in London, Miami at the Delano, and New York at the Royalton. Positions in events, especially at the Hotel Café Royal in London, led her to sales, first in London and then in the well-being industry in Paris. She joined Evok in 2021, bringing her expertise and skills to the international hotel industry.

Jean-Baptiste Rol Project manager

After studying hotel management, he worked for various luxury hotels, especially in accommodation services. In 2015, he joined Evok as assistant to senior management. Alongside Emmanuel Sauvage, he perfected his expertise in project development and participated in all the group’s openings in France and abroad. A true orchestra leader, he monitors projects from A to Z, including construction, interior design, and operation.

Dario Daoud Artistic Director

Having always been a self-taught enthusiast of the graphic arts and culture, Dario Daoud started his career at prestigious advertising companies such as Proximity, Bbdo, and devarrieuxvillaret. He then became a lifestyle consultant. He has supported the Evok group from the beginning with various print or digital products. He creates the visual identities of the hotels in all of their various versions.
