Bernard Arnault General Information


Mr. Bernard Arnault serves as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. He serves as President and Board Member at Groupe Arnault. Born to an industrial family in Roubaix, France on March 5, 1949, Mr. Arnault attended the Roubaix lycée and the Faidherbe lycée in Lille. He then went on to study at the Ecole Polytechnique. He began his professional career that year as an engineer with the Ferret-Savinel construction company and successively was promoted to various executive management positions before becoming Chairman in 1978. Mr. Arnault remained there until 1984, when he undertook the reorganization of the Financière Agache holding company. He returned the group to profitability as he embarked upon a strategy of developing the world's leading luxury products company. In the process, he reinvigorated Christian Dior as the cornerstone of the new organization. In 1989, Mr. Arnault became the majority shareholder of LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton, creating the world's leading luxury products group.
