On Friday 28th October, Europa Star had to say goodbye to a long-time and esteemed colleague; Francine Papaux. After 33 years in the publishing world, Francine thought that it was about time to sit back and enjoy a well-deserved retirement.

Mrs Papaux joined the company in 1978 when she worked on its “Eurotec” and “Bulletin d’Informations” publications. Between 1979 and 1986, she worked on the internationally renowned “HB Watch Buyer’s Guide”. And from then on until October 2011, she became Europa Star’s valuable Production Director, not only working on the group’s usual magazines, but also on its special inserts and its various websites (www.worldwatchweb.com).
