Education: London School of Economics
Company: LVMH - Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton
Current CEO: Bernard Arnault
Bernard Arnault’s daughter, Delphine Arnault-Gancia, became the first female board member of luxury goods conglomerate LVMH at age 28.
Since then, she’s built up some serious street cred: After working at McKinsey and managing product lines for Christian Dior, she’s now executive officer of Italian luxury goods company Emilio Pucci S.r.L, and Director of LMVH.
High-end extravagance for this now-famous female executive goes beyond the boardroom. Guests at Arnault’s wedding to Alessandro Vallarino included designer Karl Lagerfeld, former French first lady Bernadette Chirac and president Nicolas Sarkozy.
