With Guillaume Motte, LVMH strengthens its management team

This new position aims to strengthen the management of a group of brands often overshadowed by the conglomerate’s major houses, namely Louis Vuitton and Dior.

He joined the retail industry in 1999, holding general management positions at Fnac for 8 years, before becoming C.E.O. of Al-Tayer Trends Group in 2007. He directed the Jennyfer fashion retailer for 6 years, Celio for 3 years and joined Sephora in 2018.
