Delphine Arnault is the second women to have joined the 12-member executive committee of LVMH, the luxury goods group run by her father, Bernard Arnault. The group indicates that it made this choice because of her product awareness and her close connection with young designers. Born in 1975, she joined the group after a stint at McKinsey, working on the development of the John Galliano label before working in the management of Christian Dior Couture, where she also oversaw Rossimoda, an Italian shoe company bought by LVMH. She has lately been executive vice president of Louis Vuitton, overseeing all product-related activites. LVMH's main rival in France, Kering, scores better in terms of gender equality at the management level. Women represent 56 percent of the group's managers, 33 percent of the executive committee members and 64 percent of its board directors. Last November, Kering got a prize for the “most feminine” board of directors, after analyzing the 200 largest public companies on the Stoxx Europe 600 index.
