Pascale is a true inspiration and embodies the success that can be achieved when talent is coupled with hard work and commitment. Our “We Play to Win” campaign is meant to showcase Matomy’s dedication to strategy-driven results. Pascale has continuously redefined the rules of the game but has always come out on top. We could not be more proud to be supporting Pascale and we will be rooting for her in September.”
