Rémy Cointreau Group CEO role confirmed

Rémy Cointreau Group has confirmed Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet’s position as CEO and announced her proposed shake-up for the management team.

François Hériard Dubreuil, chairman of the board of directors, commented: "The strategic plan presented by Valérie Chapoulaud-Floquet is both ambitious and bold - it heralds a new era in the history of the Rémy Cointreau Group. Valerie owns all the invaluable qualities and experience to strengthen the Group's leadership in the high-end spirits sector and to continue its international expansion."

Against this background, Chapoulaud-Floquet has announced the composition of a new management team, in order to optimise the Group’s agility and responsiveness. The executive committee has been increased from six to 12 members with the addition of the managing directors for the markets (EMEA, Americas, Asia and Global Travel Retail), as well as for the brands (House of Rémy Martin, Louis XIII & Mount Gay, Liqueurs & Spirits, Bruichladdich and The Botanist), who will now report directly to the Group's CEO.

Chapoulaud-Floquet is a well-known talent in the luxury goods sector. Having studied international business and finance, she worked for L’Oréal for more than 20 years before joining Louis Vuitton, part of the LVMH luxury group in 2008 as president and CEO in Taiwan. She later moved to Milan as president of the southern Europe division and, in 2011, crossed to New York to become president and CEO of Louis Vuitton North America, then president and CEO Americas in July 2013. Last September, she also took on the additional role as global CEO at Remy Cointreau in Paris.
