Delphine Arnault, daughter of the French luxury conglomerate’s CEO, Bernard Arnault, has been appointed to the Executive Committee.

Born in 1975, Delphine Arnaut has pursued her education at the London School of Economics and the EDHEC business school in France. After a brief collaboration at consultancy firm McKinsey, she worked on the development of the John Galliano label, before joining the Executive Committee of Christian Dior Couture and becoming the label’s Deputy General Manager. In 2013, she was appointed Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton. She joins a committee that consists of eleven other members, ten of them men, the youngest of whom is 52.

“I’m delighted that Delphine has joined the group’s executive committee, which will therefore become not only more feminised, but also younger. Her universally recognised ‘product’ awareness, now making a valuable contribution to the exceptional success of Louis Vuitton, and her close connection with designers and stylists, especially with the younger generations, are all assets which will benefit the group,” said Bernard Arnault.
