Céline Boutier, number 1 French golfer and currently 12th in the world, becomes an Abeille Assurances ambassador and joins Antoine Rozner and Agathe Laisné as spokespersons for the actions of Abeilles Assurances in favor of professional equality in the golf world.

The number of tournaments is lower, the "prize money" as well, women are also less visible in the media. By supporting Céline Boutier, Abeille Assurances wishes to continue to participate in the recognition of women golfers and to promote women's professional golf in France. This decision is in line with the commitment of Abeille Assurances, which since 2018 has wanted to support women's professional golf, through its participation in the Lacoste Ladies Open de France.
“I am very proud that Abeille Assurances welcomes Céline Boutier, France's number 1 golfer and ranked twelfth in the world, with a remarkable professional career. With Agathe Laisné and Antoine Rozner, whom we have been supporting for 1 year, Céline will defend with conviction gender equality in the golfing world. Through its strong notoriety and its visibility in France, Céline will help to amplify the messages and actions in favor of gender equality carried by Abeille Assurances. » Nancy Haye, Communication & Brand Director Abeille Assurances
