Yann Debonne is an Emmy Award-winning television editor and producer. Having produced and directed over two thousand hours of live television, live music concerts, and unscripted programming, Executive Producer Debonne is no stranger to creating and building experiences for others to enjoy.
Since his adolescence, Yann has had a love for all things mechanical and a thirst for creating. Having restored or renovated many homes throughout the years, Yann’s passion for building culminated with his takeover of a failed real estate management company. Within four years, Yann turned the business into profitability and capped his successful tenure at the company by supplying capital to build the first two CVS pharmacies in the state of Utah.
In 2011, Yann met his business partner, Chris Hoffman during a painstaking, detailed restoration of a 1911 Charles Driscoll-designed home in Pasadena, California. Yann and Chris instantly bonded over their dedication to quality and hands-on craftsmanship. It was only natural that they combined forces and created their own construction building company, Hoffman Yann Builders.
In his rare moments of free time, Yann enjoys welding, rock climbing, mountain biking and skiing and traveling with his wife and two children.
