Born in California, Melissa Regan Devogele began her career in finance. Working between Paris and London, she made Europe home and began her entrepreneurial career in 2003, founding the French footwear label Vouelle.
Her passion for art and design led her into the events sector and in 2016 she founded The MR Agency. Seven short years later, the agency now supports hundreds of events a year throughout the 25 gallery spaces that she runs in the
heart of Paris. Her clients includes Samsung, Spotify, Microsoft, L’Oreal, Hermes, Frame, Roksanda, Biotherm, Netflix, Dior and La Redoute just to name a few as well as multiple projects from Mark Shaw exhibition to Paris Design Week
and of course, the ever present Fashion week.
In 2021, she created MR Agency Real Estate to respond to an increasing demand from her international clients for more permanent venues, both commercial and residential and a growing market of home buyers looking to invest in property in the City of Lights. With a clientele that covers Asia to the Americas, and Europe to the Middle East, she also provides relocation services to leading luxury houses and tech companies.
She has been selected by the French government as a service provider for the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs program “Welcome to the French
Tech”, that promotes investment in France. Melissa Regan is a member of the American Club Events Committee, founded by Benjamin Franklin, as well as a jury member of Art Paris Art Fair Promesses Award at the Grand Palais. She is a regular judge for the Esmod fashion school student projects as well as for Paris College of Arts.
She lives between Paris and London with her husband and 2 young sons.
