From Line Manager to Member of the Executive Committee, her career in CMA-CGM leads her to the management of several group of lines : Asia-Mediterranean and Asia-Middle East.

In 2012 she is appointed, by ministerial decree, Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Dunkirk. Two years later, she is appointed at the head of the first French port, Marseille Fos. It is as such that she becomes then Chairwoman of Intermed association.
Faced with the growth of data traffic and the need for higher network performances, the demand for submarine cable systems is steadily increasing. In response to this trend, Interxion and GPMM share a common goal towards the development of cable landing facilities in Marseille. GPMM acts as a neutral facilitator towards a pre-equipped and pre-authorized landing stations in the Marseille harbor area. By doing so, operators or consortium members could benefit from a neutral “ready to equip” infrastructure, with a pre-authorized permit already provided by the French authorities. In addition to save time, this solution allows an easy implementation in a secure and reliable environment managed with highly operational excellence standards. Mrs Cabau, Port of Marseille Fos CEO and Fabrice Coquio, President of Interxion France, offer to make a presentation of this project and to explain how Marseille has now become a strategic gateway for cable system operators
